Private Health Assessment

Hello lovely people

I know that I am lucky and this is a nice problem to have... I have recently been fortunate enough to find my way into my employer's "senior management" health cover scheme and it provides a contribution of up to £500 on an annual health assessment, which I would like to take advantage of. 

My question is, which provider will give best value on this? I would be prepared to top up the amount if necessary. I am a woman in my 30s, in reasonable health apart from the usual pains of a sedentary job, not overweight and no children as yet. Both of my parents died relatively young (early-mid 60s) from cardiovascular conditions so I would like to get some reassurance/advice/encouragement on my health outlook from the professionals.  

Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

    There are plenty advertised which have lots of useless stuff mixed in with some good. If you have a family history of cardiovascular conditions it may be worth spending one years allowance seeing a cardiologist. Maybe a consultation, cholesterol blood tests, an ultrasound of the heart and an ECG would be around £500. Only guessing really about cost. If it was too expensive split it over 2 years. Maybe you could buy a blood pressure monitor with atrial fibrillation detector if that was allowed. If you are planning on having children someone would be happy to take £500 off you for pre-pregnancy counselling but you can easily do it yourself with google.
