Medical Screening

Here is some general information to consider before you attend for your health screen at Roodlane.

Appointment time
Urine sample
Exercise ECG
3D body scan
Well-woman screening

There is also further information specific to the medical you booked in the Appointment Specific Requirements link on the left of this page.

Appointment time

Please note: if you are given the option of online form completion, there is no time allocated to complete when you arrive. Please do make sure you complete the forms before your attend.

The time you have been given for your appointment is not the time that you will consult the doctor.

If you are having tests performed such as hearing, eyesight or lung function this will be performed before your consultation time with the doctor. Please bear in mind that if you arrive late for your appointment that it may not be possible to complete everything before you see the doctor. If you are having an eyesight test please bring your glasses to the medical.

Urine sample

Please remember that you will be asked to provide a urine sample during the medical.


Historically fasting was clinically recommended before having blood taken for a cholesterol profile. Current recommendations are that prolonged fasting is no longer required as a matter of routine. However, if you have any reason to be concerned about your cholesterol level or are monitoring the effect of an intervention to lower cholesterol such as medication or specific diet a fasting sample of 6 hours may help to eliminate variable factors such as recent food intake.

If you wish to fast we suggest that you book an early appointment and delay breakfast and drink only black tea/ coffee or water before you attend. However if you have an exercise ECG then a light breakfast should still be considered. If your appointment is later in the day then there is no reason not to have a light breakfast but it is preferable to avoid a large fatty meal, a lot of sugar or alcohol in the four hours before you are due to be seen.

It is also important to attend well hydrated to improve the accuracy of other blood tests and also body fat measurement.

Exercise ECG

If you are having an exercise electrocardiogram then please bring some comfortable loose clothing and appropriate footwear that you can wear to use either the bicycle ergometer or treadmill. If you are unable to use either due to health limitations or have a strong preference then please mention this to the booking team.

3D body scan

Please wear white or light grey underwear, preferably close fitting, if you are having this scan. This will facilitate the quality of this scan, which uses light beam technology to take many accurate body measurements from head to toe.

Well-woman screening

Please endeavour to book your medical in the middle of your cycle if you wish to have a cervical smear test. Should you find that your period is going to coincide with your medical then please telephone to rearrange your appointment beforehand as we may not be able to rebook your smear test as a separate procedure as part of this screening.

If you are planning to have a routine screening mammogram then please discuss this with the bookings team to understand the procedure which will vary according to the location of your medical.

Cookies - what are they?

A "cookie" is a piece of information, which is stored on your computer within the web browser when you visit a website. When the user visits the same website in future, the data stored in the cookie can be retrieved by the website to notify the website of the user's previous activity on the site.
They are used by most major websites and are typically key in allowing use of the website.

What are cookies used for?

We use cookies and some other data stored on your device to:

  • give you a better online experience
  • allow you to set personal preferences
  • protect your security
  • measure and improve our service

So what information is kept by the cookie?

A cookie will typically hold:

  • the name of the website that it has come from
  • how long the cookie will stay on your computer or phone
  • a value - usually a randomly generated unique number

How long do cookies stay on my computer?

Session cookies - these only last until you close your browser. They are not stored on your hard drive. They are usually used to track the pages that you visit so that information can be customised for you for that visit.

Persistent cookies - these are stored on your hard drive until you delete them or they reach their expiry date. These may, for example, be used to remember your preferences when you use the site.

Cookies on Roodlane websites: in detail

We use cookies on all Roodlane websites This page explains what each cookie does and why we use it.

These cookies are essential to making our online services work properly. If you do want to disable these cookies you can do this in your browser settings but you might not be able to use some of our online services.

Sr.No. Name Description
1. FirebugLite Created in third party (Fusion Chart) document.
2. [ASP.NET_SessionId] Maintain session ID of user logged in.
3. $_SERVER['HTTP_COOKIE'] Contains the raw value of the 'Cookie' header sent by the user agent.
4. [PHPSESSID] Maintain session ID of user logged in.
5. __utma This cookie is typically written to the browser upon the first visit to your site from that web browser. If the cookie has been deleted by the browser operator, and the browser subsequently visits your site, a new __utma cookie is written with a different unique ID. This cookie is used to determine unique visitors to your site and it is updated with each page view. Additionally, this cookie is provided with a unique ID that Google Analytics uses to ensure both the validity and accessibility of the cookie as an extra security measure.
6. __utmb This cookie is used to establish and continue a user session with your site. When a user views a page on your site, the Google Analytics code attempts to update this cookie. If it does not find the cookie, a new one is written and a new session is established. Each time a user visits a different page on your site, this cookie is updated to expire in 30 minutes, thus continuing a single session for as long as user activity continues within 30-minute intervals. This cookie expires when a user pauses on a page on your site for longer than 30 minutes. You can modify the default length of a user session with the _setSessionCookieTimeout() method.
7. __utmc This cookie is no longer used by the ga.js tracking code to determine session status.

Historically, this cookie operated in conjunction with the __utmb cookie to determine whether or not to establish a new session for the user. For backwards compatibility purposes with sites still using the urchin.js tracking code, this cookie will continue to be written and will expire when the user exits the browser. However, if you are debugging your site tracking and you use the ga.js tracking code, you should not interpret the existence of this cookie in relation to a new or expired session.

9. __utmz This cookie stores the type of referral used by the visitor to reach your site, whether via a direct method, a referring link, a website search, or a campaign such as an ad or an email link. It is used to calculate search engine traffic, ad campaigns and page navigation within your own site. The cookie is updated with each page view to your site.
10. __utmv This cookie is not normally present in a default configuration of the tracking code. The __utmv cookie passes the information provided via the _setVar() method, which you use to create a custom user segment. This string is then passed to the Analytics servers in the GIF request URL via the utmcc parameter. This cookie is only written if you have added the _setVar() method for the tracking code on your website page.
11. __utmx This cookie is used by Website Optimizer and only set when the Website Optimizer tracking code is installed and correctly configured for your pages. When the optimizer script executes, this cookie stores the variation this visitor is assigned to for each experiment, so the visitor has a consistent experience on your site. See the Website Optimizer Help Center for more information.
