During Your Visit

Our clinical team will ensure you experience a quality health screening in a relaxed environment. We look forward to welcoming you.


  • Our receptionist will greet you, and can answer any questions you may have.
  • The receptionist will invite you to donate for your health screening. Your gift makes such a difference – our service is entirely donor-supported and your donation will help us continue. Thank you!
  • If you wish to donate before or after your visit, there are many ways to give. The quickest is to make your donation right here on our website. Thank you for your support.
  • The receptionist may invite you to fill in a short anonymous feedback form after your appointment. This is voluntary, but we welcome your comments and are always pleased to hear what you have to say.


  • Please remember to bring your urine sample, bowel screening test, and health questionnaire with you.
  • If you don’t like needles and injections, or if you feel faint or dizzy, please tell us. Your nurse will be able to make you more comfortable.
  • You should also tell us if you’re on any medication, as certain medication can affect the test results


  • There's no need to undress for your ultrasound scan, as only your abdomen is exposed.
  • If you are a woman with your uterus (womb) and/or ovaries, you will have filled your bladder an hour before your ultrasound scan. You can nip to the lavatory and empty your bladder as soon as the sonographer has finished that part of the ultrasound!
  • NB If you feel at all unwell after drinking the water (eg headache, nausea) please tell the receptionist or sonographer immediately.
