I think 23andMe do medical DNA testing.

Ancestry will estimate your ethnicity and provide matches. Don't know how well it differentiates between English, Scottish and Irish.

Thanks for putting my mind at rest, Margaret.

I'd pretty much made my mind up to do an Ancestry test in the New Year but then, last night in bed, I suddenly thought about the medical aspect of it. I really don't want to know anything like that...
