About Our Health Screening Programme
UPMC now offers health screenings for common conditions and early detection of underlying health issues. Using the latest technology and guidelines, we perform a broad range of diagnostic assessments and tests to create a comprehensive overview for each patient. From risk assessment to individualised management plans, UPMC supports your journey to better health.
Patients also benefit from a streamlined referral system, should you need care from one of our highly-regarded consultants. Our experts will coordinate your care across specialities to ensure a holistic approach to high quality, advanced care.
Patients may self-refer.
In addition to standard measurements for blood pressure, height, weight, BMI, and waist circumference, we will also perform the following:
- Blood tests
- Fasting glucose and haemoglobin A1c
- Lipid profile, including cholesterol and triglycerides
- Urea, creatinine, and eGFR
- Fasting cholesterol profile
- Renal, liver, and bone profiles
- Thyroid function tests
- Full blood count
- Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) for men over 40

If clinically indicated by your consultant, additional tests can be performed. Pricing is available upon request.
Taking charge of your health helps ensure you can be there for all of life’s important moments. UPMC is here to help, with an assessment process that treats each patient as an individual. Our consultant will review the results of your screening in detail, taking care to educate you on how you can build and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
For any organisation that wants to run at peak capacity, people are the most valuable asset. Companies in the South East and Midlands can empower employees to take charge of their health through a customisable health screening programme from UPMC.
