Health Assessments

Some conditions may not show symptoms

Even if you’re not feeling unwell, conditions like high blood pressure and high cholesterol may have no symptoms.

Benenden Health Assessments provide an excellent opportunity to better understand your current state of health and how you can work towards improving it. They can provide more in-depth tests that aren’t available with a standard NHS check-up, and give you the opportunity to raise any specific health concerns with our qualified healthcare professionals.

Choose an assessment that suits you

With four levels to choose from and preferential prices for our members, we’re sure you’ll find an assessment to suit your needs. Arm yourself with the tools you need to be able to make informed decisions about dietary and lifestyle choices.

Call 0800 414 8486 to book your appointment, or you can order online by clicking the button below.

Body composition (height, weight, hip to waist & body fat percentage)
In addition to BMI we will estimate your percentage body fat, and we will take your waist and hip measurements and calculate the ratio. The reason we do that is because if you are carrying any excess weight the way you carry it is almost as important as how much you carry.
