Want to make sure you’re in the peak of health? Sadly, it’s often a wait of three weeks to see your NHS GP. And when you’re there, they’ll often be constrained by budget before they can offer you the tests you need.

To celebrate the launch of Twenty-five Harley Street’s state-of-the art laboratory, prices have been reduced to enable you to test for issues which your NHS GP may not have the time or resources to help with.

If you’ve been feeling ill or run-down, these amazing offers will allow you to discover whether nutrient deficiencies, or hormonal imbalances are causing you problems.
