Cholesterol Screening Service

This comprehensive resource has been developed to help members set up a professional cholesterol screening service.

Why provide a Cholesterol Screening Service?

According to estimates from Heart UK, over half of all adults in England have raised cholesterol above 5mmol/l. Having a high cholesterol level (hyperlipidemia) can have a serious effect on a person’s health as it increases the risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

Setting up a cholesterol screening service will enable you to detect people who may be at risk from elevated cholesterol levels through a screening service. The screening service is designed to establish a client’s TC/HDL ratio and give an indication of their blood lipid profile.
