Payment details


Upgrade and add enhancements through the booking portal and pay online with a credit or debit card. 

Who are the tests for?


Prostate tests are for those assigned male at birth, while the bowel and osteoporosis tests are for everyone. As health risks tend to increase with age, these tests are recommended for individuals aged 40 and over.

What if results are high?


We'll explain prostate test results during the health check and refer employees to their GP if results are high. For the bowel and osteo tests, we share employee results via the booking portal. If results are high, we send a letter explaining the result and recommending a follow-up with their GP.


Please note: These Enhancement Tests are preventive screening checks, designed to identify risk. If you are experiencing any symptoms of ill-health, always see your GP. Do not wait for a health check.
