About Guernsey Chest & Heart

Guernsey Chest and Heart LBG is a charitable body, primarily concerned with the provision of a free health screening service to the residents of the Bailiwick of Guernsey. The objectives of the charity are "the prevention and treatment of and research into respiratory and circulatory diseases".

Screenings and blood pressure checks are carried out by fully qualified and experienced nurses.


Our Goal

Reducing the risk of heart disease depends upon identifying your risk factors and then taking remedial action.

The full screening looks at a range of risk factors and consists of a comprehensive questionnaire, electrocardiogram, breathing tests, blood pressure, height and weight measurements, together with several readings taken from a single blood sample which includes cholesterol and diabetes screening.

The results can be analysed and an assessment of relative risk for any one individual can be made from specific analysis tables. Each screening takes approximately 30 minutes.

Screened volunteers are advised of the results, and any improvements they may make to their diet or lifestyle.


Employers

We can also arrange to visit your place of work and carry out blood pressure and weight measurements for all your employees.
