About Bupa UK’s new health assessments:
Health assessments traditionally provide an overview of a person’s health. Bupa’s new health assessments have been designed to ensure people start engaging with their health even before the day of the assessment, and have continued support to meet their goals after the assessment.
Unlike other some other health assessment provides, our customers don’t need to fast before their appointment, and with improved technology will receive results within 15 minutes.
