The level of cholesterol in your blood is an important factor in the risk of developing a range of health problems – including heart disease and stroke.

We can refer you for a blood test at Spire St Anthony’s Hospital in Cheam where experienced and dedicated nurses will take a blood sample to be analysed in their modern laboratories. Your blood test result will be sent to your practitioner, usually within 24 to 48 hours.

Assessing your cholesterol levels should be part of any health assessment. Your levels are likely to be higher if you have an unhealthy diet and don’t exercise regularly. You might also wish to know you are at risk to encourage yourself to make healthier lifestyle choices.
