Limits on Lifestyle checks

From the 1st of November 2014, we regret that we shall not be able to carry out lifestyle (or so-called ‘MOT’) tests, such as repeated cholesterol or blood pressure checks, where there is no clinical reason for doing so. We all know that the NHS is under severe financial pressure at the present time, and we have to concentrate our resources on the patients who are really in need. 

For this reason, we have to limit NHS lifestyle checks to those patients who are eligible for them, and they will receive a letter of invitation. If you are unsure about your position, do please ask us. Naturally, we shall honor all existing bookings, and if you need it, we can provide advice on how to secure a private health check.

We are grateful for your support for this decision.
