Cervical cancer is diagnosed in 8 women every day or around 2,900 women every year. 60% of these cancers are in women under 50 making cervical cancer the most common cancer in women under 35. If diagnosed early up to 90% of women will survive. HPV is reported to be responsible for all cervical (and some other) cancers.
GynaeCheck is an early detection programme for pre cancer and cancer of the cervix that employers can offer to staff. The programme includes:
Once the home testing kit sample has been returned to GynaeHealth UK in a pre-paid return envelope the results will be available within 10 working days advising if further investigations are needed.
GynaeCheck will test for HPV, which is responsible for all cervical cancers.
GynaeCheck is suitable women from the age of 25. Women who have had HPV vaccination (covering 70% of all HPV viruses) are not 100% covered and it is up to the woman herself to decide to have GynaeCheck.
The real benefit of GynaeCheck is that it can be carried out in the comfort and privacy of your own home. There is no need to visit a clinic or be examined. This means convenience and privacy.
By offering these services to its staff, an employer can achieve up to 25% discount on standard pricing. The cost of GynaeCheck is £110. For company sponsored campaigns, prices are negotiable depending on company size and the extent of the service offering.
We can provide you with material for company intranets and table tents, banners and posters to support a campaign. If required, we can develop co-branded corporate websites.
