Health Check will begin with a comprehensive review of your own, and your family medical history, to identify any increased risk factors.

Your doctor will do a physical examination, including BP, BMI and breast examination. The remainder of the consultation is tailored to whatever tests are relevant to you, but the following is included:

  • Contraception advice
  • Pre-pregnancy advice
  • Cervical Check smear*
  • Information on HPV
  • Urinalysis for diabetes, chlamydia (if warranted)
  • Bloods, if warranted (depending on medical history)
  • STI Screening – Screening for sexually-transmitted infections involves taking a series of samples that are analysed for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV and syphilis. If blisters or sores are present, a sample will also be taken to check for herpes infections.
  • Information on osteoporosis
  • Information on menopause
  • Bloods, if warranted (depending on medical history)
  • Blood tests: cholesterol, anaemia, thyroid function, diabetes (others if warranted, and depending on medical history)


*Smear tests may be taken for patients who meet Cervical Check’s eligibility criteria.
