About Evolve Medical’s Private Health Screening
Evolve Medical offers three health screening packages in Leeds, each offering a different level of screening to suit your lifestyle and individual needs. The health screening will identify whether you are at increased risk of a particular condition, which can prove invaluable for patients who have yet to experience symptoms. Identifying diseases and conditions early, when they are easier to treat, can improve a patient’s long-term health and wellbeing. Following the results of the screening, our team of medical professionals may offer further tests and appropriate treatment to reduce the risk and/or complications arising from the potential disease or condition. Many patients choose to undergo a full medical check up, including blood tests and a GP consultation with our resident, fully qualified GP to discuss the results of their test, for peace of mind. Evolve Medical’s empathetic, professional team of medical experts will provide reassurance throughout the screening process, ensuring you have a comfortable experience when you visit our clinic.

What Can I Expect From My Screening Results?
Each of Evolve Medical’s health screening programmes includes a consultation with our resident GP to discuss your results. If you get a normal result after a screening test, this means your health screening has not flagged up potential health issues. However, this does not mean you’ll never develop the condition in the future - it just indicates that you are low risk at the moment. Regular medical screening can be part of a healthy, active lifestyle, helping you to be aware of potential health risks. If your screening tests reveal a higher-risk result, you may have one or more of the conditions you have been tested for. Our resident GP will offer you advice, support and treatment.

Underactive or overactive thyroid

Markets for potential cancers
How Often Should I Get A Health Screening?
How often you should get a health screening will depend on several factors including your age, lifestyle and medical history. A full medical check-up is recommended at least once every five years throughout your twenties, once every three years throughout your thirties and forties, once every two years throughout your fifties and once a year in your sixties. However, the decision to book a health screening is an entirely personal one.

What Is A Health Screening?
Health screenings consist of a variety of tests, which could include blood tests, urinalysis, blood pressure monitoring, lung function tests and more. These tests not only help to pinpoint current health problems, but also identify if you have a higher chance of developing certain health conditions in the future. This helps patients to make more informed decisions around their health, from seeking out early treatment to making lifestyle changes as a preventative measure.
Understanding Your Blood Tests
Each of our health screening packages includes blood testing to provide a comprehensive overview of your health. It’s important to understand what each of these blood tests reveal and how this relates to your health.
Blood tests included within our Core health screening package
Full Blood Count (FBC)
A full blood count test is used as a broad screening test to check for disorders such as anaemia, infection and other diseases. It is a panel of tests that examines different parts of the blood including Haemoglobin, Red Blood Cell parameters, White Blood count including differential and platelets.
Urea and Electrolytes (U&Es)
The U&E profile includes sodium, potassium, urea and creatinine. These tests are used to assess kidney function and to determine the health of your kidneys.
Liver Function Tests (LFTs)
Liver function tests check the health of your liver, helping to diagnose any liver damage.
Thyroid Function Tests (TFTs)
TFTs test for and diagnose thyroid disorders such as underactive or overactive thyroid.
This test helps to diagnose diabetes by obtaining the three-month average of blood sugar.
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that plays a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood. Low B12 levels can result in headaches, tiredness, and feeling drained.
Folate is needed for the body to make healthy red blood cells, so a folate test can identify if a patient is anaemic.
A ferritin test is used to diagnose iron deficiency anaemia, as it checks how much iron your body is storing.
This test indicates vitamin D supply to the body. If you are deficient in Vitamin D, you may have muscle weakness, pain, fatigue and depression, so determining your Vitamin D levels is an important step towards diagnosis and subsequent treatment.
This is a combination of blood tests to check the cholesterol levels and the level of triglycerides in the blood. Unhealthy levels of lipids can clog your arteries and increase your risk of heart disease and strokes, and can also be responsible for unhealthy weight gain.
Blood tests included within our Enhanced and Ultimate health screening packages
Both our Enhanced and Ultimate health screenings for men and women include each of the Core blood tests, plus additional tests for a more comprehensive health profile:
Male blood tests
Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA)
PSA is a protein made in the prostate gland, and high levels of PSA can be an indicator of prostate cancer.
Low levels of testosterone can affect fertility, libido, erectile dysfunction and sex drive among other things. This test will indicate levels of testosterone in the body.
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin is a protein synthesized by the liver and used to investigate infertility, reduced libido or erectile dysfunction in men
Female blood tests
Oestrogen helps to evaluate ovarian function. Measuring your oestrogen levels could lead to greater understanding around ovulation, pregnancy, the menopause and more.
This can be used to check for ovulation when investigating fertility problems.
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) is a protein synthesized by the liver and used to investigate unwanted, excessive hair growth and irregularities in the menstrual cycle.
Low levels of testosterone in women can cause weight gain, reduced sex drive, low mood, reduction in muscle mass and fatigue.
This is often known as the ‘cancer antigen’, therefore the CA125 test can help to detect some ovarian cancers.
