What is a Covid-19 Ready Screen?
Our Covid-19 Ready screen is aimed at providing patients with information about their health that may make them more susceptible to a severe reaction to the Covid-19 virus. In understanding your overall health the tests are a baseline to monitor improvements as recommended by our doctors. Working with our patients to reduce the risks and improve outcomes of Covid-19.
This is a package of blood tests, patient history with doctor consultation to determine firstly a patient’s risk to Covid-19 and provide a programme of recommendations based on patient health and current evidence relating to Covid-19 infections.
It is also a valuable tool kit to understand overall health and improve areas that require attention.
Our Covid-19 Ready screen can be carried our entirely remotely with finger prick kits for blood samples and video teleconsultations should you decide you do not wish to attend a clinic.
Little is know about Long Covid and the affects and duration but by monitoring key health indicators our doctors can assess and recommend ways to assist your recovery.
If a patient has had the Covid-19 infection we can use CV-19 Ready to form a baseline to monitor adverse effects from the disease as the patient recovers.

Once you get in touch by telephone, email or website contact form we will firstly register you as a patient of the clinic. Depending on whether you wish to attend clinic to see a nurse to take your bloods or whether you wish to do from your home we will book and appointment or post you a finger prick blood testing kit. Various arrangements can be made to assist and please discuss your individual circumstances with our experienced team.
