Health screening… identify any health issues or health risks

Take a proactive approach to the overall health of your workforce. We offer a wide range of non-invasive medical health checks to identify any existing health issues or potential health risks.

Health Screening describes a series of tests, which help to identify any existing health issues and potential health risks at that time. Once we have identified who is going to be screened (usually from results of the Digital Health Risk Assessment), our health technician takes each person through a series of non-invasive tests.

Health screening options include:

  • Body Composition ‘Baseline Checks’
  • Lung Capacity/Lung Age
  • Blood Pressure
  • Self-Examination Breast Check Kit
  • Intolerance Testing
  • Covid-19 Antibody Testing

Blood chemistry test options include:

  • Total Cholestorol and/or Full Lipid Profile
  • Blood Glucose (Diabetes)
  • Liver Function
  • Haemoglobin (Anemia)
  • H-Pylori (Stomach Ulcers & IBS)
  • Thyroid
  • Prostate Specific Antigen Test
Once the tests are concluded, the person being screened is given a personal and private report, summarising the findings and making recommendations for improvement, which could include a recommendation to seek medical help.

Our advice is focused on:

  • Prevention practices – what to do to prevent, lessen or reverse a particular problem
  • Good nutrition and healthy eating – usually geared towards weight loss
  • Regular activity and fitness
  • Stress management

The results benefit the business

We view Health Screening as the start of a process, second only to a Digital Health Risk Assessment and not for the sake of checks alone.
Anonymous, statistical data from the collective results may be used for planning a company wellbeing policy and assist in formulating any remedial training (whether that be for mental or physical health), however, details of
personal reports remains totally confidential.
We provide you (the business) with a full report identifying any risks within your workforce. This will allow you to make informed and educated decisions regarding how and what to offer your employees, in order for your business to benefit from the results.

The report will help to:

We were really pleased with the health checks. Every staff member personally emailed afterwards to thank me and say how they think all staff in the organisation should have them. Another colleague also had a potential health issue identified which he then went to the doctor and is receiving further support. He said he would never have known this is it was not for the health checks as he rarely visits the GP. I would definitely use this service in the future and have mentioned this to our HR colleagues as to how valuable this is for staff wellbeing and engagement.

Michaela Hyman – Learning & Development Manager, Citizen Housing
Celebrate Health & Fitness gave a group of our staff health checks. They are very personable and able to put you at ease. Each person was given a full report explaining their results, and a clear explanation of each item. We now know what these numbers mean and how to maintain them. One member of staff found out some vital information and was advised to follow up with their GP, had they not been made aware of this, it could have escalated into a serious problem. We would definitely recommend CHF for their services.

Test and measure

Body Composition ‘Baseline Checks’

Standing with bare feet on our biometric scales allows us to collect data about your body weight, fat mass, muscle mass, bone weight, BMI, metabolic age, hydration levels and visceral fat readings. It is a totally painless and non-invasive test requiring you only to know your age and gender before stepping on the scales. This test is often done at the start of any fitness and/or weight loss programme and at regular intervals to check on progress.

Lung Capacity/Lung Age

The better your fitness levels, the easier it is for your lungs to keep your heart, your muscles and your body’s cells supplied with enough oxygen – which feeds our brains, repairs our cells and even calms our nerves.

This evaluation of your respiratory system quite simply requires you to breathe with maximal effort into a tube. The test measures how much air you can hold after taking a deep breath in, how quickly you can exhale the air (carbon dioxide) and the strength of your breathing muscles.

Results will vary depending on your age, sex and height – whilst factors such

as lower fitness levels and smoking, or conditions such as asthma, can reduce lung capacity. A low volume may indicate risk of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

Blood Pressure

This measures the maximum pressure created in your blood circulatory system as your heart beats (Systolic) and in between beats (Diastolic). High blood pressure, or hypertension, rarely has noticeable symptoms, but if untreated, it increases your risk of serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes.

Self-Examination Breast Check Kit

This ‘take home’ kit contains a gel filled glove and a CD with instructions on how to check your breasts for irregularities.

Intolerance Testing

This is a hair strand test whereby a sample is sent to a laboratory to check for both food and non-food product intolerance.

Blood chemistry

A blood chemistry test is a painless procedure that involves testing a pin-prick of blood taken from the tip of your finger. Here are some of the tests that we offer:

Total Cholestorol and/or Full Lipid Profile

This test measures the good and bad fats present in your body. Cholesterol is a fatty substance that is produced naturally in the liver, which plays a vital role in cellular function, however, a high level of Cholesterol could lead to the blockage of arteries and could be an indicator of increased risk of Coronary Heart Disease and Stroke.

Blood Glucose (Diabetes)

Blood glucose levels are ever changing and dependent on many factors including what is eaten and when. Checking the glucose (sugar) levels present in your blood, will determine how well your pancreas is working and whether you are at risk of developing diabetes.

Haemoglobin (Anemia)

Low Haemoglobin levels indicate a shortage of the oxygen carrying pigment in your red blood cells. Commonly referred to as Anemia, this can be due to an iron or vitamin B12 deficiency, poor diet or sustained bleeding.

H-Pylori (Stomach Ulcers and IBS)

Helicobacter Pylori (H-Pylori) is a bacterium that affects the digestive system, which left untreated can lead to ulcers in the stomach lining and/or small intestine. It may also be associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Most people do not know they are infected, and a positive result should be followed up with your GP.

Thyroid

The thyroid regulates the chemical processes that happen within our bodies, and our metabolism. This test measures Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) levels, and screens for hypothyroidism (an under-active thyroid), with a long list of symptoms requiring investigation with your GP.

Prostate Specific Antigen Test

This test (for men only) checks protein levels in the blood, which may be an indication of an enlarged prostate. This can lead to symptoms of an obstructive nature due to narrowing of the urethra, infection and/or risk of prostate cancer. High readings would suggest further investigation with your GP.

CA 125 or HE4 or Protein Signature (OVA 1)

This test (for women only) screens for protein markers in the blood that may indicate changes in ovarian tissue, which could lead to Ovarian or Endometrial Cancer. Low or high readings may be an indication of problems with ovaries, which are in themselves inconclusive. High readings would suggest further investigation with your GP.

Covid-19 Antibody Testing

Whether you require one off screening of your employees or regular testing, we can create a bespoke testing programme that will minimise disruption to your activities and protect your workforce and clients.

Urinalysis

Urine testing or urinalysis is a dipstick test, whereby a reagent stick (a thin plastic strip treated with chemicals) is dipped into your urine. The chemicals on the reagent stick react and change colour in accordance with the concentration and content of urine. The results provide valuable information regarding an individuals hydration levels and health status, and can detect a wide range of disorders, such as urinary tract infections, kidney disease, liver disease and diabetes mellitus.
Important information: Health screening results serve as an initial measure, accurate at the time of testing. Results should not be used for the diagnosis or treatment of medical conditions. They are not a substitute for medical surveillance; therefore, identifi cation of any health issues should be presented to your GP for diagnosis or treatment.

We can and do, have a positive impact on companies and society in general, and we are actively seeking
to become Partners in Health with businesses that take Corporate Social Responsibility seriously.
