Health Screening Blood Tests at Health Food and More
Health Screening is of great importance but it’s not always easy to get an appointment with a GP to authorise routine blood tests. We now offer a blood screening service at Health Food and More. We have teamed up with a top private lab to offer a package of health screening tests that include full blood counts, liver function, kidney function, lipid profiles, diabetes HBa1C, detailed thyroid testing and vitamin D testing.
Not only can these tests be used to assess your current health status, but they can be used to monitor whether any health programmes you are following are having a positive impact on your longer term well-being.
Our Medical Herbalists will often recommend a health screening blood testing following a consultation and being able to offer a service in house is convenient for our clients, especially if trying to fit appointments around a busy schedule. In addition some of the tests on offer give more detail than those available via your GP, for example we can offer more detailed thyroid screening than that available on the NHS.
These tests are not intended to substitute treatment from your GP, but offer you the potential to make informed decisions about your health. Testing is available for both clinic clients and our retail customers and no pre-appointment is necessary to screen you before booking to have a blood draw done. However it may be of benefit to have a brief chat with one of our registered Medical Herbalists should you be considering a health screen through our service.
The results are assessed by a GP at the lab before you receive your results and clinical notes and recommendations will be made should results warrant further investigation with your own doctor.
