In addition to this, we offer 360+ health assessments, which are even more in-depth. Costing £899 for up to 30 tests over 180 minutes, they include a 60-minute physical fitness test using our Wattbike. This option is for those who want to focus on their cardiovascular health in particular and are concerned about their heart, fitness, cancer, or planning to improve their future health. 

Is there anything that isn’t suitable for a health assessment or not covered?

Emotional wellbeing and mental health is not covered in a general health assessment, although a conversation with a medical professional is always encouraged, so that they can point you in the right direction of other services we may offer.

Who carries out the health assessments at Nuffield Health Cheltenham Hospital?

We have three physiologists here in Cheltenham, Luke, Jess and Molly; plus two doctors, Stephen and Julie, who all work as a team to complete a health assessment.

What's the difference between a health MOT at my local gym and a health assessment at Nuffield Health Cheltenham Hospital?

At a health assessment, you have the opportunity to see a doctor and a more detailed blood analysis will be made, alongside ECG testing, fitness testing and further coaching.

You will receive a full health report once the assessment has been reviewed.

How does long it take to get the test results back?

We aim for most of our reviews (including blood sampling) to be back the same day the assessment is done.

If there are additional queries that need to be sent off, then these will be in the report sent to the patient.

The report will be released to the patient within 14 days.

If any issues are uncovered, what happens next?

A referral will be sent from the health assessment doctor to the patient’s GP, or a private specialist consultant based here at the Nuffield Health Cheltenham Hospital.

How do I go about booking an assessment and how quickly can they be arranged?

Health assessments can be booked by calling our central line on (03301) 624466.
