Employee health checks are delivered in one-to-one sessions, and measure the following:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Body mass index (BMI)
  • Blood pressure
  • Blood glucose (an indicator of potential diabetes risk)

Each health check lasts approximately 20 minutes and we can carry out approximately 20 health checks per day per trainer.

Blood Pressure Screening

Gateway Blood Pressure Clinics offer up to 80 appointments lasting approximately five minutes per employee. Using our automatic blood pressure machines, a trained member of team will measure your employees’ systolic and diastolic reading, along with heart rate.

Employees are provided with their results along with supporting information to understand why having a healthy blood pressure is so important.

Cholesterol, Blood Glucose and/or Lung Health Tests

Cholesterol tests and Blood Glucose tests take approximately five minutes per employee and we can see a maximum of 80 employees per day. Additional costs apply to tests exceeding this amount.

Tests are carried out by a trained member of our team. Employees are given their results with information about how they compare to the national guidelines.

The Cholesterol and Blood Glucose tests can be combined with our Lung Age and Smokerlyzer® tests. These tests also take approximately five minutes per employee (ten minutes maximum if combined with Cholesterol and Blood Glucose). Therefore, up to 40 employees per day. Employees are given their results along with simple and translatable supporting health information.
