Baseline health check

Evercare offers each patient a baseline health check when you join so that we can be fully across your health requirements and have formal records of key measurements (like your blood pressure, resting pulse etc) to refer to. This record allows our GPs to stay across all of your health needs as they get to know you and to best understand your specific requirements.
