Health Assessments

Taking control of your health and fitness

We believe passionately that prevention is even better than a cure, and given the advanced diagnostic capability of the hospital we also know that early detection of health problems can dramatically change health outcomes.

At St Joseph’s we understand that your health is the most important thing to you and your family.  So why take a chance with your future?

Health screening is strongly recommended by the UK government and many other governments around the world as a vital method of reducing the incidence and effects of chronic diseases, which cause the premature death of over 150,000 per year in the UK alone.

The UK government recently launched a 'call to action' which identified that health screening is needed to tackle the incidence of premature death in the UK population.

However, because of affordability constraints the NHS is only able to provide a very rudimentary health screening service, which will determine whether you are at statistical risk of some of these diseases, but not whether you actually have a disease.

At St Joseph’s we fully understand that looking after your health should be a lifelong journey, and we therefore offer the most comprehensive range of health assessment services available outside of London.

Our health assessment services are backed by the very high diagnostic capability, and the professional staff of the hospital.  All of the assessments results are analysed by specialist clinicians, and of course if you need specific treatment for a condition identified, referral to one of our consultants can take place without delay.

Many patients who undertake our health assessments at St Joseph's will receive recommendations to change their lifestyle, to improve and protect their health.  We appreciate that we are all prone to failing to deliver on very good intentions and we therefore offer an additional service, LifeCheck Support Programme, to help you deliver those intentions with our support.  You will be supported over 12 months by a specialist physiotherapist to help achieve your goals.

Because of the very large investment St Joseph's Hospital has made in acquiring the world's most advanced diagnostic imaging capabilities we are able to offer a range of very advanced health assessments.

Our Elite Health Assessments offer an extensive range of assessments, on a menu basis, which gives you the ability to address particular concerns or choose a top to toe examination of all the organs in your body in the finest detail.  Our menu approach enables you to address the following areas of specific concern:
