After the excess of the festive period, the New Year is traditionally a time to make a fresh start in terms of health and wellbeing. But whilst many of you will kick off January with the best of intentions, we understand that a few weeks down the line your motivation may be starting to wane. At YourGP, we believe the key to achieving your health goals is to be realistic. But in order to set realistic goals, you first need to have an understanding of where you’re starting from and what you’re working with. The best way to assess this baseline is to undergo a full Health Assessment. Read on as we explain what this entails and how it could help you make real and lasting positive changes to your health throughout this year and beyond…
What is a Health Assessment?
A Health Assessment is a comprehensive package of tests designed to give a clear picture of your current state of health. It covers a wide range of areas and the aim is to highlight any issues, enabling you to take action to stop any potential problems progressing.
Everyone is different, and for that reason we tailor our Health Assessments at YourGP to suit each individual. However, each Health Assessment will include one 45-minute appointment with a nurse or healthcare assistant plus one 1-hour appointment with a GP.
What happens at the nurse appointment?
Here we carry out the following checks:
• Height, weight and BMI
• Blood pressure/pulse
• Resting ECG
• Blood test
• Spirometry (lung function) if clinically indicated
What happens at the GP appointment?
This appointment usually takes place 7 days after the nurse appointment and includes:
• Follow up review of blood results
• Review of medical history
• Lifestyle consultation and advice
• Physical examination
At this appointment, you will also be provided with a full summary of your:
• Heart health
• Diabetes health
• Liver health
• Kidney health
• Full blood count
Most importantly, once we have this full report of your overall health, we can have an in-depth discussion about how you can improve it. And if you require further attention, we will highlight this and arrange any appropriate treatment or testing.

Received injections from Lynn at the surgery. Hadn’t had an injection in 12 years, so was terrified walking through the front door at first. My mind was put at ease instantly. Very nice people, was given lots of great advice, and the injections were a piece of cake. Couldn’t be happier. Recommended!
