Often it is quite difficult to get blood drawn at your GP or Walk in Centres. We offer a unique service where we can take blood samples as well as centrifuge and freeze them if required, Along with this we offer to package and post your samples to a lab of your choice.
Our regular phlebotomy includes taking two blood samples however if you require more than two bottles we can take additional samples as per your requirement.
What is Adrenal Stress?
Two small glands, known as the adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and help us deal with life’s stresses by releasing the hormones, cortisol and DHEA. These hormones are not released constantly throughout the day. Instead they are secreted in a cycle called the circadian rhythm (sleep/wake cycle), with the highest levels being secreted in the morning and the lowest at night.
Sometimes in periods of long-term or severe mental or physical stress these glands can go into overdrive. If this occurs for too long or too often then the adrenals later become exhausted. When this happens, the hormonal levels of Cortisol, DHEA in the blood stream become imbalanced.
The ANS Analysis measures the autonomic nervous system via the heart rate variability (HRV).
ANS Analysis is a very simple and fast method to show how well our body's primary control center, the autonomic nervous system (ANS) is working and performing its regulatory duties. With its two main divisions, the sympathetic and the parasympathetic nervous system (or vagus), the ANS represents a superordinate control center in the body. It controls and regulates subordinate processes and all vital functions, including blood pressure, respiratory rate, heart rate, immune system, endocrine system, digestive system, energy supply, etc.
In just 7-10minutes the ANS analysis assesses the condition of the fight or flight and rest and digest nervous system showing you whether your body is adapting to stress and everyday life in a healthy way.
Our in-house functional medicine practitioner would go through your results and give you appropriate advice as well as supplements if required.
Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) measures impedance by applying alternative currents on the human body. A simple but effective non-invasive technique to analyse body composition. Analysing body composition describes what the body is made of. It includes fat, protein, minerals and body water. It also describes weight more accurately than BMI.
Body composition analysis can accurately show changes in fat mass, muscle mass and body fat percentage. This can help validate services like personal training, patient care and corporate wellness.
The Lipid panel cholesterol test includes measurements fot Total cholesterol, LDL (bad cholesterol), HDL (good cholesterol), Triglycerides and VLDL.
The Glucose test provides a measurement for a person's blood sugar level, where an elevated reading can indicate an increased risk for Diabetes.
For most laboratory analyses, serum or plasma is required, i.e. the liquid part of the blood.
In order to obtain serum or plasma from blood, the solid blood cells need to be separated from the liquid part. This process of separation is achieved via centrifugation.
Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
If left untreated it can cause painful complications and serious health problems such as pain in the testicles in men, and pelvic pain and even infertility in women.
A lot of people with chlamydia don’t get any noticeable signs or symptoms of the infection.
Testing for chlamydia is really simple, painless and doesn’t necessarily require a physical examination by a nurse or doctor.

A complete cholesterol test is also called a lipid profile. This test is used to measure the amount of "good” (HDL) and "bad” (LDL) cholesterol and triglycerides, a type of fat, in your blood.
This test can help predict your risk of heart disease and allow you to make early lifestyle changes that lower cholesterol and triglycerides.
Too much cholesterol can lead to:
- heart disease
- atherosclerosis, a clogging or hardening of your arteries
The Complete Hormones test is the most comprehensive urinary hormone profile, it is designed to assist with the clinical management of hormone-related symptoms in both male and females.
This profile assesses parent hormones and their metabolites as well as key metabolic pathways, provides insight into the contribution that sex hormones may have in patients presenting with hormone-related complaints, and helps assess disease risk associated with elevated oestrogen metabolites.

The impact of diet, lifestyle, exercise, and environment on an individual’s genetic makeup should not be underestimated. Knowledge of how genes are influenced by external factors enables the development of personalised health programs not only in supporting the chronically ill patient to improve health, but also for someone at peak fitness levels to gain the most from their training programs.
Our DNA tests focus on health management, dietary disposition, athletic performance and drug metabolism. Each test provides a unique insight into a patient’s genetic code: revealing sensitivities, susceptibilities, and keys to their true health potential.
Our Comprehensive Genetic Profile Tests Package includes:
DNA Health, DNA Diet, DNA Oestrogen and DNA Mind.
C-reactive protein (CRP) is a substance produced by the liver in response to inflammation in the body.
High CRP levels may also indicate that there's inflammation in the arteries of the heart, which may mean a higher risk of heart attack or stroke.
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. In the UK, around 90% of all adults with diabetes have type 2.
Diabetes can lead to serious complications, and the higher your HbA1c, the more you're at risk of developing them.
We test your HbA1c levels here at the pharmacy as it is a more accurate measure of your blood glucose levels over the last 3 months and gives us an indication of your blood glucose control. Knowing your levels and understanding what they mean can help you reduce the risk of complications associated with diabetes. We also offer personalised lifestyle intervention advice depending on your results.
All we need is a small blood sample, which is obtained with a simple prick of a finger. We will then measure levels of glycosylated haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) in your blood. HbA1c measures your average blood glucose levels over past three months. As a result, this is a useful indicator and allows for early detection of risk for diabetes.
One of the first products of its kind in the world, DNA Diet tests for 15 genes that impact metabolism and exercise. The genes comprising the DNA Diet test have associations with body weight and body mass index, and all meet stringent criteria for utility in genetic screening tests. We provide a detailed report with recommendations that include dietary changes and an exercise programme.
Genes involved in regulation of energy expenditure, appetite, and fat metabolism, all play an important role in weight regulation. In fact 40% to 80% of the variance in body weight is due to genetic factors. This helps to explain why not everyone gains or loses weight while following the same diet, despite being exposed to similar environments. Identifying an individual’s responsiveness to diet and lifestyle modification to control weight can be extremely advantageous.
Genetics determines an individual’s susceptibility to obesity when exposed to an unfavourable environment. It also explores the way a person responds to diet and exercise.
The DNA Health test is designed to optimise well-being and health by personalising lifestyle and diet choices and, where necessary, using supplements tailored to offset any particular nutritional deficit based on specific gene variants.
Diet is a key factor in determining genomic stability as it impacts on all relevant pathways: exposure to dietary carcinogens, biotransformation, DNA repair and synthesis, and apoptosis.
The DNA mind test analyses 30 genes which have been shown to have significant associations with key mental health disorders.
DNA mind reports on associations in the following areas:
- Neurodegenerative disorders – mild cognitive decline & late onset Alzheimer’s disease
- Mood disorders – Depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorder & post-traumatic stressdisorder
- Addictive behaviour – Risk for alcohol, nicotine, cannabis & opioid dependence, psychosisresponse from cannabis use, eating disorders (binge eating), ‘adrenaline seeking’/risk-taking behaviour
DNA Oestrogen includes 11 genes involved in oestrogen biosynthesis, oestrogen metabolism, and phase I and phase II detoxification, providing information to guide personalised diet, lifestyle, hormone, and nutra-ceutical recommendations.
Approximately 80% of breast cancer occurs in women with no family history. Oestrogen affects the function of a number of target tissues and research has shown that an increased lifetime exposure to oestrogen is a strong risk factor in the development of breast cancer. DNA Oestrogen tests for gene variants that have been shown to have an impact on how oestrogen is metabolised.
Guiding the personalisation of diet, hormone and nutritional supplement recommendations, based on the insight gained from the DNA Oestrogen test, to improve oestrogen metabolism is of benefit to men and women who suffer from numerous oestrogen-dominant conditions and who have higher lifetime exposure to oestrogens, oestrogen metabolites and other carcinogens.
Sometimes we get hard of hearing, or we feel really blocked either with too much wax or cold or through flying affecting pressure equalisation in our eustachian tubes. We offer a consultation and ear examination for only £20 and prescribe the appropriate treatment. Come and visit us.
Ear irrigation itself involves using a flow of low-pressure water via a specialised ear irrigator to harmlessly remove the earwax blockage.
Microsuction is one of the safest methods to clean the ear. The nurse, doctor or audiologist treating you looks at your ear using a microscope. This magnifies the ear, making it easier to assess and treat. A suction device is used to clean the ear without the use of water. The gentle suction device works in a similar way to a vacuum cleaner and although it can be quite noisy, it is quick and painless. If the object being removed is hard, then removal can be slightly uncomfortable. The person performing the procedure will always advise you if they feel it is going to be uncomfortable.
The EstroGenomic® Profile uses genomic testing to identify susceptibility to diseases and conditions such as breast cancer, osteoporosis, and heart disease. This profile evaluates genetic variations, called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in genes that modulate estrogen metabolism, coagulation, cardiovascular function, bone health, and inflammation.
Ferritin is the most sensitive marker for an iron deficiency as it is the main storage form of iron in the body.
This test will help assess the levels of iron stored in your body.
Symptoms of food intolerance can take up to 72 hours to appear after eating the trigger food or group of foods. On average people who suffer from food intolerances* usually have around 4 or 5 trigger foods.
The term ‘food intolerance’ and ‘food allergy’ are often confused and are two very different things.
Genuine food allergy is relatively rare. Only about 2% of the adult population are affected. A food allergy is a swift response by the body’s immune system to a specific food. In this type of reaction, the body’s immune system mistakes a food for an ‘invader’ which often results in a rapid allergic reaction often within minutes, but generally within a maximum of two hours. This type of allergic reaction is commonly associated with reactions to peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs and seafood.
Food intolerance is quite different to food allergy and whilst the symptoms can impact the person’s quality of life, they are not life threatening. Food intolerances are much more common than food allergies.
When foods and drinks are digested the proteins within them are broken down into smaller fragments for easy absorption into the body. Larger fragments can pass through without breaking down, and sometimes the body reacts by attacking them using antibodies called Immunoglobulin G’s (IgG).

The human genome is comprised of approximately 3 billion base pairs of DNA. Many people mistakenly assume that the presence of a certain gene or single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) means they are destined to experience the associated disease. However, most genes have flexible expressions and complex interactions among multiple genes and the environment affect gene expression.
These interactions – known as epigenetic influences – include diet, chemical exposure, stress response, and the presence of other SNPs.
Our Genomics Profile Package includes:
CardioGenomicPlus Profile, DetoxiGenomic Profile, Estrogenomic Profile, ImmunoGenomic Profile, NeuroGenomic Profile
Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that can infect both men and women. It can cause infections in the genitals, rectum, and throat. It is caused by bacteria called Neisseria gonorrhoeae or gonococcus.
Symptoms of gonorrhoea usually develop within about 2 weeks of being infected, although they sometimes do not appear until many months later.
About 1 in 10 infected men and 5 in 10 infected women will not experience any obvious symptoms, which means the condition can go untreated for some time.
It's important to be tested for gonorrhoea if you think there's a chance you're infected, even if you have no obvious symptoms or the symptoms have gone away on their own.

The herpes simplex virus, or herpes, is categorized into 2 types: herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2).
- HSV-1 is mainly transmitted by oral-to-oral contact to cause oral herpes (which can include symptoms known as "cold sores”), but can also cause genital herpes.
- Most oral and genital herpes infections are asymptomatic.
- Symptoms of herpes include painful blisters or ulcers at the site of infection.
- Herpes infections are most contagious when symptoms are present but can still be transmitted to others in the absence of symptoms.
Call us today to book your appointment!
Infection with the herpes simplex virus, commonly known as herpes, can be due to either herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) or herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2).
HSV-2 is almost exclusively sexually transmitted, causing infection in the genital or anal area (genital herpes). HSV-2 is the main cause of genital herpes, which can also be caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1).
Genital herpes infections often have no symptoms, or mild symptoms that go unrecognised. Most infected people are unaware that they have the infection.
Infection with HSV-2 increases the risk of acquiring and transmitting HIV infection.

HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that damages the cells in your immune system and weakens your ability to fight everyday infections and disease.
AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) is the name used to describe a number of potentially life-threatening infections and illnesses that happen when your immune system has been severely damaged by the HIV virus.
With an early diagnosis and effective treatments, most people with HIV won't develop any AIDS-related illnesses and will live a near-normal lifespan.
The only way to find out if you have HIV is to have an HIV test.
This involves testing a sample of your blood for signs of the infection.

Discover your homocysteine levels and make improvements to your wellbeing.
The Lorisian Homocysteine test is a simple home-to-laboratory test, which delivers reliable results within just 21 days. It also includes comprehensive support material to help your clients make lifestyle changes to reduce their risk. A high homocysteine level has been associated with a higher risk of developing heart disease, stroke, Alzheimers and dementia.
- Our clinically proven test is carried out by our expert laboratory, who will assess your client’s levels of homocysteine with a simple home-to-laboratory blood test
- There are an increasing number of studies that show homocysteine to be a predictor of potential health problems, including heart disease, stroke, Alzheimers, dementia, infertility, declining memory and lowered mood.
- Lorisian’s test is the UK’s only finger prick homocysteine test on the market
Homocysteine measurement does not give a definitive diagnosis of increased risk of these conditions and any symptoms or concerns must be checked out by a doctor before carrying out the test.
This test provides a focused overview of hormonal balance in both pre- and post-menopausal women, using a single serum sample to evaluate dynamics of sex steroid metabolism that can profoundly affect a woman's health throughout her lifetime.
This test evaluates genetic variations in genes that modulate immune and inflammatory activity. These variations can affect balance between cell (Th-1) and humoral (Th-2) immunity, trigger potential defects in immune system defense, and stimulate mechanisms underlying chronic, overactive inflammatory responses.
The liver is the second largest organ in the body, and it plays a crucial role through performing many complex functions that are essential for life. Alcohol, poor nutrition and diet, lack of exercise, being overweight and hepatitis are common causes that may lead to liver disease.
Your samples will be tested for two important liver enzymes: alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST).
The Lorisian LiverCheck test is a simple and convenient home-to-laboratory test, which delivers reliable results within just 10 days.
This test evaluates single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in genes that modulate methylation, glutathione conjugation, oxidative protection and the potential to evaluate vascular oxidation.
Erythrocyte and whole blood toxic element levels are good indicators of body pools of essential elements as well as the toxic elements aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, lead,* and mercury. This test is an accurate way of determining whole body status of potassium and selenium.
Whole Blood generally reflects increased or recent exposure to toxic elements. This test shows levels of cadmium, lead and mercury. Nutrient elements are measured in erythrocytes and toxic elements are measured in whole blood. One exception is selenium, which is measured in whole blood as a reliable index of selenium status.
Metal toxicity is a significant environmental health concern. A toxic load of lead, cadmium, mercury or arsenic is capable of rendering considerable damage to the brain and nervous system, particularly in children.
The NutrEval test is a comprehensive test for identifying nutritional deficiencies.
Studies suggest that even a balanced diet may not provide all essential nutrients. This test will help assess your nutritional needs by identifying any deficiencies that may be associated with complex chronic conditions.
Critical nutrients that are functionally assessed include:
- B Vitamins
- Essential Fatty Acids
- Digestive Support

Getting tested and treated for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is straightforward and confidential. With the right treatment most infections can be cured.
Our private clinic offers a full range of sexual health screening which means you will be able to get all your sexual health care provided in one place at one time.
Our sexual health services package includes testing for:
Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis and HIV.
Syphilis is a bacterial infection that's usually caught by having sex with someone who's infected.
It's important to get tested and treated as soon as possible if you think you might have syphilis, as it can cause serious problems such as damage to your heart, brain and nervous system if it's left untreated.
You can catch syphilis more than once, even if you've been treated for it before.
Get tested if you are worried you might have it, have symptoms or if a sexual partner has been diagnosed with syphilis.

The human papilloma virus HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection. In many cases, infection does not cause any symptoms, but it can cause genital warts, and even lead to genital cancers, including cervical cancer (the second most common form of cancer in young women).
The use of condoms reduces your risk of contracting HPV. However, condoms are not 100% effective at preventing HPV infection as the virus can be present on the skin in the entire genital area.
The HPV vaccine consists of two or three doses, which are given by injection. The number of doses you require depends on your age.
Children under the age of 15 require two doses and if you are 15 or older, you require three doses to be protected.
The thyroid is the bodies thermostat, controlling body temperature, growth rate and energy use. It controls the rate at which the body uses food and affects the operation of almost all bodily processes and organs. An under-functioning of the thyroid gland can result in a condition known as hypothyroidism.
The total thyroid screen analyses serum levels of TSH, total T4, free T4, free T3, anti-TG antibodies, and anti-TPO antibodies to assess central and peripheral thyroid function, as well as thyroid auto-immunity. This test gives the full picture of thyroid health status.
The analysis of these important vitamins is part of an assessment of certain types of anaemia and nutrient status during pregnancy.
Vitamin B12is needed to prevent anaemia, which works with folic acid in regulating theformation of red blood cells, and helps to utilise iron.
