HOW IT WORKS
Simply select the test you want from the range of specialist blood tests and health checks. Medichecks tell you everything you need to know about your test, from what type of sample you need to collect, to how many markers we are testing for as well as how long it is likely to take once the laboratory has received your sample. Our recommendations are below
Collect your sample
Many of the tests can simply be taken at home with a finger-prick sample. They will send you everything you need including clear instructions on how to collect a sample successfully.

Mail the sample
All of the test kits come with a pre-paid first class envelope to post your sample to the laboratory. It is important that the sample arrives the following day so it is always best to take your sample in the morning to meet the midday post
Get your results
Once Medichecks have received your results from the lab we will post them securely onto your own personal dashboard at mymedichecks.com.
We can then set up an analysis to get your personalised nutrition plan in place.
