Frequently asked questions
We often hear the same question asked, and here are our answers. If your question is not answered, please contact us.
Do you screen for cancer?
We do not. Screening for cancer requires expensive tests that require samples sent off for laboratory work. It is not part of our current offering.
Can you assess children under 18?
The medical literature surrounding assessing children is complex. Since children develop physically at different rates, many of the algorithms we use don't work accurately for under 18's. For this reason, we do not assess children.
Are any of the tests invasive?
One test requires a finger prick to gain a small sample of blood. All other tests are not invasive.
I'd prefer to have a clinician of the same gender as me for my assessment.
This is not a problem. Our pre-assessment questionaire asks for your preference. If you do not indicate a preference until your appointment, it is possible that we will have to re-book you. Please let us know in advance!
How are you different to Health Screening services in the marketplace?
Most health screenings take measurements and report them back to you, indicating if you are inside or outside normal range. Many provide reports manually written by a medical expert. The problem is no two experts will necessarily come to exactly the same conclusion, and they are unlikely to use the same language to explain the outcomes to you.
