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.

Maintaining a healthy, well-balanced and nutritious diet is the easiest way to stay fit and healthy. But sometimes, people experience deficiencies in essential vitamins and minerals through no fault of their own. A lack of certain essential nutrients can leave people feeling generally unwell and susceptible to illness. That's why regular vitamin and mineral health screening is such a good idea.
Even if you feel OK, nutrient deficiencies could be having a profound effect on issues such as your energy levels, mental health and immune system. By identifying deficiencies early, you can make the necessary lifestyle changes or pursue relevant treatments before your symptoms worsen.
A private vitamins and mineral health screening appointment at an iGP clinic couldn't be easier or more comfortable. An experienced and fully qualified physician will take your sample in one of our modern clinics. Your sample will then be sent to one of our trusted laboratories for express analysis. You should receive your results within just a few days.
Among the vitamins and minerals we look for are:
If we discover a deficiency, our clinicians will advise a course of treatment or a series of lifestyle changes. You may be advised to take supplements orally or via injections.
Depending on the deficiency you have, you might be experiencing some very specific symptoms. For example, if you're deficient in iron, you might be struggling to concentrate and suffering from a sore tongue. If you're deficient in ferritin, you may be experiencing chronic headaches, leg pains and tinnitus. Your clinician will assess your test results and symptoms before diagnosing the problem or instigating an investigation.
Some of the generic symptoms related to vitamin and mineral deficiencies include:
A general feeling of ill health
Unexplained weight problems
