Prostate health checks

A prostate check is used to detect the early signs of prostate cancer. You can get your prostate checked through a blood test, which checks your PSA (prostate specific antigen) levels. A higher amount of PSA in your blood could be a sign of prostate cancer, or a problem with your prostate.

As you get older, your risk of getting prostate cancer increases. That’s why it’s important to get it checked if you have any concerns or symptoms. If you’re over 50, you can get your PSA levels checked with some of our health assessments. A prostate check is included in our Enhance, Mature and Peak health assessments. You’ll get your results on the same day and have time to discuss these, along with any concerns you have with a GP after the test.

What happens after the assesssment?

During your health assessment, the team will work with you to set some goals. You’ll receive two follow-up calls from our lifestyle coaches, who will check to see how you’re getting on. You will also have access to our Anytime HealthLine, a telephone service where you’re able to speak to our team of nurses and GPs. This is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
