Health checks and full medical assessments can help you gain a better understanding of your health and identify any potential risks. They can also highlight any concerns or areas of your health and wellbeing where steps could be taken to prevent any future illnesses.
Importantly, a health check should not be a substitute for a visit to your GP. If you have a health concern or symptoms, you should see your doctor. If you're struggling to find time to see your GP, and you’re an AXA Health member, then our online GP service enables you to have an online or phone consultation, when it suits you.
Private health assessment options
There are numerous options if you want a health check with a private provider, with many offering different levels of assessments – from checks in specific areas to full body health MOTs.
Some offer the same checks as the NHS and others offer more. There are also clinics that provide complementary screening, such as hair analysis to reveal vitamin and mineral deficiencies, or bio-resonance tests to measure energy levels. However, please note - not all of these are proven to be accurate or beneficial.
