We are now re-open for health screening services

To maximise safety and convenience for patients, we have made reAssure I-IV health screens available either in-person or via video consultation with remote blood testing kits and other observation kits being sent to patients at home.

If you choose to come to a clinic, our bookings team will take you through a Coronavirus screening questionnaire and advise of measures taken to ensure safety when you travel to one of our clinics.

If you choose a remote health assessment, your tests will be confirmed and kits sent to you for completion in the post.

All digital aspects of your health screen can be accessed using the My HCA GP app (Apple / Android) or via our web portal in the usual way.

Our reAssure health screens offer so much more than just a simple health check. We focus on the main health risks affecting the UK population, such as cardiovascular health, diabetes, weight management and some cancers.

Elite Health Screening

Elite Health Screen

The Elite Health Screen is one of the most advanced medicals the UK has to offer and our most advanced health assessment, combining comprehensive diagnostic tests with a personalised doctor led service.

Advanced health screens

It may be that your GP appointment or reAssure screen shows up something that requires further investigation. In such cases, your GP might recommend you take one of our 12 advanced screening tests, each of which focuses on a specific health risk.

What they involve

  • Adrenal stress profile test icon plus

    The adrenal stress profile tests for imbalances in your stress hormones. This can be an important indicator of hormonal imbalances associated with certain conditions. These include management of stress, anxiety, depression, issues with blood sugar or glucose levels, chronic fatigue syndrome and weight management problems.

    Your GP will send the test kit to your home. It contains a saliva swab, and you'll need to take a saliva sample four times throughout the course of a single day. The results will be analysed in a laboratory and your GP will write to you with your results. 

    If your adrenal stress profile shows up any abnormality or imbalance, your GP will contact you to discuss the next steps, which may include lifestyle changes or even medication.

  • Breast MRI icon plus

    Although breast cancer mostly affects women over 50, it remains the most common type of cancer among women under 35. If you're under 40 with a higher genetic risk of breast cancer or have been identified as having dense breast tissue, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be recommended as a means of early diagnosis and detection.

    The MRI scanner is a ring-shaped machine, which uses powerful magnets and radiology to create a detailed image of your body from a number of different angles. It shows up soft tissue very clearly. The scan takes around 30 minutes. If the MRI shows up any abnormality, your GP will contact you to discuss the next steps.

  • CANTAB Insight icon plus

    If you have problems with your processing speed, attention and memory, the CANTAB Insight test can help measure your cognitive health. This digital assessment focuses on areas like your executive function, your processing speed, your attention, your working memory and your memory of events and experiences.

    You'll complete an assessment in a quiet room using a tablet. An audio soundtrack will guide you through the test, which will be recorded as part of the report. Depending on the results of your CANTAB Insight test, you may have further diagnostic tests or treatment, or a follow-up appointment.

  • CT coronary angiogram icon plus

    This minimally invasive test is used to check your risk of heart disease by examining the arteries, especially if you're overweight, unfit or you smoke. Your GP may also recommend it if you have high cholesterol or blood pressure, diabetes, a thyroid condition or a family history of coronary heart disease.

    First, you'll have an injection of dye into a vein in your arm so your arteries will show up on the scan. The CT scanner is a ring-shaped machine which contains X-ray tubes. You'll lie on a bed which passes through the machine, while it rotates and takes a number of 2D images which can be stacked together to create 3D images.

    Your GP will send you the results once they're ready. If your test suggests you have or are at risk of coronary heart disease, your GP will contact you to discuss the next steps.

  • CT virtual colonoscopy icon plus

    A CT scan creates a series of X-rays to form a 3D picture of your bowel, a less invasive alternative to an endoscopic procedure. We may recommend a CT if you drink alcohol, smoke and eat a lot of red and processed meat, or if you already have a bowel condition or a family history of bowel cancer.

    You may have an injection of contrast dye beforehand, and your radiologist will insert a small tube into your back passage to fill your bowel with air or carbon dioxide, to make the CT scan clearer.

  • DNAFit test icon plus

    This test determines your response to a series of genetic markers which are associated with fitness, nutrition and sporting performance. Based on your result, your GP can provide personalised advice and help you to build a personalised lifestyle plan.

    During your appointment, your GP will carry out a simple saliva test, then send your sample to the DNAFit laboratory. The sample will be analysed by a team of human genetics and nutrigenomics, who will focus on the interaction between nutrition and genetics. If your DNAFit test shows up any abnormality, your GP will contact you to discuss the next steps.

  • FibroScan┬« icon plus

    A FibroScan® is an ultrasound which can measure the elasticity of your liver, an indicator of liver health. Your GP may recommend this if you drink an excessive amount of alcohol, are overweight, obese or unfit, or if you have diabetes. It's a quick, non-invasive procedure and you shouldn't feel any discomfort.

    Your consultant hepatologist or specialist nurse will apply gel to the right side of your abdomen, then pass the ultrasound probe across the surface of your skin. It gives out ultrasound waves and measures the speed at which they bounce back from your liver. This can indicate how much fibrosis, or scarring, is present.

  • Ovarian health icon plus

    Ovarian cancer can often be diagnosed late because the position of the ovaries in pelvis makes it less likely to be spotted. We can carry out a simple blood test, testing levels of the protein CA125 which, if raised, may indicate cancer.

    Your GP may also book you a minimally invasive ultrasound scan of the pelvis with a radiologist at one of our hospitals. Together these can offer you a better chance of early detection and treatment.

  • Hereditary cancer test icon plus

    The Invitae genetics test will determine whether you are at an increased risk of developing 45 medical conditions, including many of the common cancers.
  • Hereditary cardiac test icon plus

    The Invitae genetics test will determine whether you are at an increased risk of developing 45 medical conditions, including cardiovascular disorders.
