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.
Information: Our heart health blood test measures a range of key bio markers that indicate the health of your heart (cardio vascular system). Please use the book now button to book your appointment at IGP. Locations will be available as a dropdown option on the booking screen.
Important: Fast from midnight & drink plenty of water. Suitable for those >18 years of age.
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.
Whether you're experiencing the symptoms of cardiovascular disease or you're worried that you're genetically predisposed to heart problems, a heart health blood test can put your mind at ease.
A quick, relatively painless procedure can tell you whether or not you?re experiencing or likely to develop a cardiovascular condition. We will send your sample to our laboratory for an express analysis before giving you the results ? usually within a few days.
When we perform a cardiovascular function blood test, we?re looking for a number of markers that might suggest a problem. If your marker levels are abnormal, we may suggest further tests or a thorough investigation. The markers we test for include:
LDL cholesterol levels
High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hsCRP)
One of our experienced doctors or phlebotomists will assess your marker levels in detail. And we'll aim to complete the tests and deliver our feedback within just a few days of your blood test appointment.
|Total Cholesterol / HDL Cholesterol Ratio||✔|
|Apolipoprotein B / A-I Ratio||✔|
|Small LDL Cholesterol||✔|
|High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hsCRP)||✔|
|Cardiovascular Risk Score||✔|
Swift and decisive treatment can slow down or even reverse a problem with your heart or cardiovascular system. But the first step on the road to successful treatment involves a blood test. If you have a family history of heart disease, you should undergo regular testing. You should seek an urgent appointment if you're experiencing any of the following symptoms:
Shortness of breath
Generally feeling unwell
An irregular heartbeat (fast, slow, palpitations, etc.)
A cough that won't go away
Regularly coughing up pink mucus
Fluid retention and weight gain
Swelling of the abdomen
Lightheadedness, dizziness or fainting
