Health cash plan provider Health Shield has launched workplace health screening services that will be available for the entire workforce, rather than just senior management: the traditional recipients of such benefits.
Health Shield now offers health screening modules on its tailored company-paid health cash plan products, which it said can be delivered within the workplace or at a suitable location nearby.
The move comes in addition to offering health screening as a standalone product and includes benefits such as:
- Tailored diet and lifestyle advice.
- Immediate test results.
- Personalised follow-up reports.
- Telephone advice post screening to allow the individual to ask any further questions and ensure they receive the preventative and diagnostic care they need.
- A report for the individual’s GP, if a follow-up is advised, with full technical data and reason for referral.
The services are provided by Health Shield Wellbeing Services previously known as Prevent, the specialist workplace health screening provider acquired by the Health Cash Plan provider earlier this year.
Carl Laidler, director of Wellbeing Services at Health Shield Wellbeing, said: “Although health screens are still considered out of reach for most, times are changing. We use hi-tech screening machinery the size of a mobile phone and can deliver ‘point of test’ results instead of having to send samples to a lab.
