Covid-19 Health Assessments

2020 will be remembered for one thing – Covid-19. Whilst vigorous debate continues over so many aspects of the virus, there are a few things we do now know for certain. Similar to other viruses that attack our respiratory system in the first instance, Covid-19 can be an unpleasant disease to contract, it is therefore worth following all the guidance to minimise the risk of contracting it in the first place. Covid-19 can affect many body systems and in some individuals cause severe complications and there is increasing evidence that some individuals suffer from so called ‘long Covid’ which is characterised by persistent symptoms many months after contracting Covid-19. These are worrying times, so we have created two brand new Health Assessments: Pre Covid-19 and Post Covid-19.

Our Pre Covid-19 Health Assessment

Our Pre Covid-19 Health Assessment is for those who have not contracted Covid but are concerned about it. It is very sensible to know as a baseline, whether you have underlying health conditions of which you are not aware, and which would materially increase your risk of both contracting Covid-19 and also developing respiratory and cardiovascular complications should you catch it. Knowing what your risk is before you contract the virus means you may well be able to do something about it and be better prepared.

What is included?

  • A detailed medical questionnaire (to determine your medical history)
  • A Covid-19 antigen swab test to confirm you do not have active disease
  • Comprehensive blood tests
  • An electrocardiogram to determine heart rhythm / detect signs of heart disease
  • Cardio Pulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) to gather objective information
    on how your heart and lungs perform during graded exercise in a clinically
    controlled environment
  • An echocardiogram to determine function of the heart muscle
  • A CT coronary angiogram – the most accurate and specific means of
    determining any furring up of your heart arteries
  • A CT chest scan (depending on medical history and current symptoms)
  • A follow up consultation - to discuss your results and your personalised
    management strategy

Our Post Covid-19 Health Assessment

Our Post Covid-19 Health Assessment is for those who have had Covid-19 yet exhibit on-going symptoms and wish to know whether these are due to complications of Covid-19 or the exacerbation of pre-existing, underlying health conditions of which they were not aware. It is possible that you have both and we can distinguish between the two for you.

We can’t change the fact you have had Covid-19, but this assessment will determine the direct consequences of the disease, we can then devise a treatment plan and refer you to further specialists if necessary.

What is included?

  • A detailed medical questionnaire (to determine your medical history)
  • A pre-consultation with a consultant physician to determine your current
    symptoms and main concerns
  • A Covid-19 antigen swab test to confirm you do not have active disease
  • Comprehensive blood tests (including a blood Covid-19 antibody test)
  • An electrocardiogram to determine heart rhythm / detect signs of heart disease
  • Cardio Pulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) to gather objective information
    on how your heart and lungs perform during graded exercise in a clinically
    controlled environment.
  • An echocardiogram to determine function of the heart muscle
  • A CT chest scan to look for residual signs of inflammation & infection
  • CT coronary angiogram +/- CT pulmonary angiogram (subject to symptoms)
    to determine any furring up of the heart arteries and blood clots to the lungs
  • A follow up consultation (to discuss the results and your personalised
    management strategy)

Our Covid-19 Home Testing Kits

Echelon Health are now offering two types of Covid-19 home testing kits: The RT-PCR test and the Roche antibody test.

The RT-PCR test will test for the presence of the Covid-19 virus in your body. The test is a nasal and throat swab that you will perform yourself at home and is priced at £220.

The Roche antibody test is used to detect any COVID-19 virus antibodies in your blood. This will determine whether it is likely that you have had the virus before. This test is a blood test which is also performed by yourself using a finger pricker to extract a small amount of blood. This test is priced at £150.

The process:

  • We take the payment and send you your home testing kit to your chosen address.
  • You perform the test on yourself at home (Swab for PCR , Finger prick for Antibody).
  • You will place your completed test in the return envelope which we enclose, and return back to our bloods lab.
  • Once your test is received by the lab, your results will be turned around within the following time frames: 48hrs for the PCR, 24hrs for the antibody tests.
