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.

A hormonal imbalance could be the root cause of the symptoms you're experiencing. By checking your female hormone levels through a quick blood test, you can find out for sure and seek the necessary treatment.
Detecting an imbalance in your LH, FSH, testosterone, SHBG, thyroid hormones or oestrogen levels is often the first step towards tackling your symptoms for good. Whether you suspect menopause or an underlying health condition, getting answers quickly will give your doctor the information needed to formulate a treatment plan or perform more detailed investigations.
One of the key indicators of menopause is oestradiol, which is a form of female sex hormone that's crucial to the production of eggs. When this hormone is in short supply, women can become susceptible to bone loss and high cholesterol levels. If oestradiol levels are too high, however, another set of symptoms can occur. Either way, it's best to have a blood test as soon as possible.
Whether you're experiencing symptoms related to female hormone imbalances or you need to check whether or not your hormone therapy is working, a quick blood test at your nearest iGP clinic will give you answers.
