IGP Level Checks are a range of health screen and individual blood tests carefully selected by our iGP Clinicians. The tests provide easy access to low cost testing of your key biomarkers to help manage, maintain and improve your health.
Simply Book your appointment online or by contacting us directly. At the time of booking, you will be emailed a pre-appointment questionnaire, which you can complete online. You will then visit an iGP clinic for your blood test (and physical examination if appropriate).
Following your appointment you will receive an electronic report clearly detailing your test results, how they compare to a healthy range, the implications and recommended next steps. Test result reports are shared via our secure patient portal, usually within 72 hours (results can take longer depending on the test you requested). The comprehensive report uses a traffic light system for ease of understanding and is available to download, print or share with other medical experts as required.
Please be aware that this is a testing/examination service only for you to take your results to your own clinician or by arranging a follow-up GP appointment with iGP. Results will not be interpreted without a follow-up GP appointment. However, results outside the standard testing range will be highlighted on your results. Your results will also include a link to book an online appointment if you wish to discuss your results with one of our doctors. There will be a £79 fee for this appointment, but the appointment is not required.
Information: Anaemia is a condition in which the body does not have enough red blood cells or haemoglobin. It can cause symptoms such as fatigue, shortness of breath, and pale skin. There are several types of anaemia, including iron-deficiency anaemia, which is caused by a lack of iron in the diet, and Anaemia of chronic disease, which is caused by chronic inflammation or illness. IGP?s Anaemia profile measures a range of key biomarkers to help identify if you are currently suffering from Anaemia. Please use the book now button to book your appointment at IGP.

Anaemia is a condition in which a person has a deficiency of red blood cells or haemoglobin, which is the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen to the body's tissues. Anaemia can be caused by a variety of factors, including a lack of certain nutrients in the diet, blood loss, or underlying health conditions.
An Anaemia profile blood test is a simple and non-invasive way to diagnose Anaemia and determine its cause. This test measures the levels of various substances in the blood, including haemoglobin, red blood cells, and certain nutrients that are important for the production of red blood cells. By analyzing these levels, a clinician can determine if a person has Anaemia and, if so, what may be causing it.
There are several different types of Anaemia, including iron-deficiency Anaemia, which is caused by a lack of iron in the diet or blood loss; vitamin-deficiency Anaemia, which is caused by a lack of certain vitamins and minerals; and Anaemia caused by underlying health conditions, such as kidney disease or cancer. An Anaemia profile blood test can help a clinician identify the specific type of Anaemia a person has and determine the best course of treatment.
If you have symptoms of Anaemia, such as fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, or pale skin, your clinician may recommend an Anaemia profile blood test to diagnose and treat the condition. Treatment for Anaemia may include dietary changes, supplements, or medications, depending on the underlying cause. By working with a healthcare professional to address Anaemia, you can improve your overall health and well-being.
There are a range of symptoms that can indicate Anaemia, including:
Fatigue: Anaemia can cause a feeling of tiredness or lack of energy, as the body does not have enough oxygen-carrying red blood cells to meet its needs.
Weakness: People with Anaemia may feel weak or have difficulty completing everyday tasks.
Shortness of breath: Anaemia can cause shortness of breath, especially during physical activity, as the body struggles to get enough oxygen to the muscles.
Pale skin: People with Anaemia may have pale skin or pale gums due to a lack of red blood cells.
Rapid heartbeat: Anaemia can cause a rapid or irregular heartbeat, as the heart has to work harder to deliver oxygen to the body's tissues.
If you have any of these symptoms, it is important to speak with a healthcare professional for a proper diagnosis and treatment. Treatment for Anaemia may include dietary changes, supplements, or medications, depending on the underlying cause. By addressing Anaemia, you can improve your overall health and well-being.
