Randox delves into the inner workings of a racing driver’s body and mind for first-ever Goodwood SpeedWeek

Goodwood SpeedWeek will bring fans closer to the action than ever before with a one-off digital technology playground that viewers can experience from the comfort of their own homes – and Randox will feature as part of the event with a documentary showing the inner workings and hidden brilliance of a racing driver’s mind and body under stress.

Being shown on Saturday 17 October, ‘The Racing Mind’ documentary looks at the psychological, physiological and chemical make up of racing drivers.

Millions of spectators will be able to enjoy 360-degree audio-visual displays, take a virtual paddock tour, use chatroom functionality to question their favourite drivers, and interact with the action through quizzes, polls, competitions and a ‘podium predictor’.

Goodwood Speedweek, which runs from 16-18 October 2020, is the most ambitious event to ever take place at the Goodwood Motor Circuit with more than 12 miles of high-speed fibre cabling being laid and 49 high-definition cameras installed, including 19 trackside cameras and 15 live on-boards. A television crew of 180 operators will help bring the action to life with 10 presenters and two TV studios required to cover all the action.

Each day will be dedicated to celebrating the automotive industry’s past, present and future – bringing together the best elements of the Festival of Speed and Revival using the latest technology.

This will be reflected in the iconic Goodwood Shootout presented by Mastercard on Sunday 18 October, with a winner-takes-all one-lap competition between some of the fastest machines in motorsport across the years, including hypercars, single-seaters and prototype sports cars.

The Duke of Richmond said;

“Technology is a core feature of Goodwood motorsport events and we strive to showcase the most innovative and forward-thinking mobility innovations. At Goodwood SpeedWeek we were presented with a unique opportunity to go one step further, quite literally placing digital right at the heart of the experience. It’s allowed us to raise the bar even higher, offering a once in a lifetime, interactive experience that is accessible to viewers anywhere in the world.”

The Racing Mind (Saturday 17th October)

In partnership with Randox, Goodwood Speedweek will show viewers the inner workings and hidden brilliance of a racing driver’s mind and body under stress.

The Technology Showcase (Sunday 18th October)

  • The first autonomous lap: Einride will undertake an autonomous lap on the Goodwood Motor Circuit including a behind-the-scenes look at how it was achieved.
  • F1 Technology: Before taking to the track to celebrate 70 years of F1, there will be a live grid walk of cars charting the evolution of technology in F1 through the ages.
  • Car vs Bike vs Drone: An all-electric race between the Virgin Formula E, Electric Harley and Drone racer on the Driftkhana course.
  • Jet Suit: A look behind-the-scenes of Gravity and how you train to become a jet suit pilot, followed by a unique race between three jet racers.
  • Ford Electric Mustang: The all-electric Mach-E Mustang 1400 prototype will take to the track for a drift demonstration.
  • Sennheiser: An interactive demonstration of 360-degree binaural audio, live from the heart of the event.

World Heart Day 2020: Take control of your heart health


News       Packages        Testimonials

29 September 2020

World Heart Day 2020

Take control of your heart health this World Heart Day

The term ‘cardiovascular disease’ (CVD) refers to any disease of the heart, vascular disease of the brain, or disease of the blood vessel. More people die from CVDs worldwide than from any other cause: over 17.9 million every year, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Of these deaths, 80% are due to coronary heart diseases (eg heart attack) and cerebrovascular diseases (e.g. strokes) and mostly affect low- and middle-income countries.

To try and raise awareness of the dangers of CVD and associated conditions, the World Heart Foundation celebrate World Heart Day on September 29th every year to inform and educate on the prevalence of heart disease.

Our latest blog looks at CVD and provides more information on types of disease and symptoms, so you can know what to look out for and how to reduce the impact of potential future heart problems.

The UK Situation

There are around 7.4 million people living with heart and circulatory diseases in the UK. Heart and circulatory diseases cause more than a quarter (27 per cent) of all deaths in the UK; that’s nearly 170,000 deaths each year – an average of 460 people each day or one death every three minutes.

Healthcare costs relating to heart and circulatory diseases are estimated at £9 billion each year.

Nation No. of people dying from CVD No. of people under 75 dying from CVD Estimated number of people living with CVD
England 136,317 35,581 6.15 million
Scotland 17,002 4,675 720,000
Wales 9,376 2,607 340,000
Northern Ireland 3,938 1,085 225,000
United Kingdom 167,116 44,261 7.4 million

(British Heart Foundation, 2018)

What are cardiovascular diseases?

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are a group of disorders of the heart and blood vessels and they include:

  • coronary heart disease – disease of the blood vessels supplying the heart muscle;
  • cerebrovascular disease – disease of the blood vessels supplying the brain;
  • peripheral arterial disease – disease of blood vessels supplying the arms and legs;
  • rheumatic heart disease – damage to the heart muscle and heart valves from rheumatic fever, caused by streptococcal bacteria;
  • congenital heart disease – malformations of heart structure existing at birth;
  • deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism – blood clots in the leg veins, which can dislodge and move to the heart and lungs.
World Heart Day

What are the symptoms of cardiovascular disease?

Symptoms of heart disease vary based on what condition you have but can include:

  • chest pain
  • pain, weakness or numb legs and/or arms
  • breathlessness
  • very fast or slow heartbeat, or palpitations
  • feeling dizzy, lightheaded or faint
  • fatigue
  • swollen limbs

How is cardiovascular disease diagnosed?

Diagnosis of coronary heart disease depends on your symptoms and what condition your doctor thinks you may have. Tests may be based on your family history and can include:

  • blood tests
  • chest x-ray
  • electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • echocardiogram
  • CT scan
  • MRI scan.

How Randox Health can help

Did you know that your heart is the size of your fist and the strongest muscle in your body? If you live to be 70, it will have beaten two and a half billion times.

Although impressive and strong, your heart can also become vulnerable from habitual risk factors like smoking, eating an unhealthy diet or putting it under stress.

Controlling these key risk factors and monitoring your blood pressure regularly may reduce an individual’s risk of CVD.

At Randox Health, we provide a range of specialised tests that enable you to take full control of your health.

Heart Health is one of our specialised tests and includes the Signature Heart Health panel of tests plus a resting ECG to give an in-depth assessment of risk of future heart disease.

For World Heart Day 2020, you can gain a detailed understanding of your Heart Health with our range of testing. Contact us today using the below details.

Take control of your liver health with a Randox Health Check

Understanding your liver health

Take control of your liver health with a Randox Health Check

Are you taking part in Dry January? Giving up alcohol can do your insides a lot of good, and it’s great news for your liver in particular. It may be that after the festive period our liver needs a little bit of rest!

Did you know that alcohol consumption across the UK increases by a staggering 41 percent more than the annual monthly average in December? That’s more than anywhere else in the world.

The effects of alcohol on your health really depend on how much you drink and how often, but as the statistics show, more of us increase our uptake of alcohol over the festive period.

So how does this impact our body and our liver?

The results of over indulging vary from a hangover, a poor night’s sleep, to causing an irregular heartbeat, and in some cases, excessive alcohol intake can lead to liver damage. This can be a very serious condition, given the liver’s vital role in the body.

The liver plays a central role in all metabolic processes. In fat metabolism, it breaks down fats and produces energy. When we intake alcohol or drugs, it metabolizes the drug and detoxifies chemicals.  And it also makes proteins important for blood clotting and other functions.

Following these processes, the liver also secretes bile that ends up back in the intestines and helps the digestion of fats and oils, otherwise known as lipids.

The liver can develop new cells, but abuse over a prolonged period reduces its ability to regenerate, causing serious damage.

It is not just heavy drinking over years that can cause liver disease – binge drinking is also a culprit and can lead to a build up of fat and subsequent inflammation. The best advice is to drink in moderation. Simple tips like taking a glass of water in-between alcoholic drinks are key to staying hydrated.

Know your units;

  • According to drinkaware.co.uk, unit guidelines are now the same for men and women.
  • Both are advised not to regularly drink more than 14 units a week
  • This equates to 6 pints of 4% beer / 6 glasses of 13% wine / 14 glasses (25ml) of 40% spirits
  • But don’t save up your 14 units, it’s best to spread evenly across the week.
  • If you want to cut down the amount you’re drinking, a good way is to have several drink-free days each week.
  • If you’ve had a heavy drinking session, avoid alcohol for 48 hours.

What does one unit of alcohol look like?

One unit of alcohol is the amount of alcohol an average adult can process within one hour so that so that there’s no alcohol left in their bloodstream.

One unit of alcohol equates to:

  • 218ml of standard 4.5% cider
  • 76ml of standard 13% wine
  • 25ml of standard 40% whiskey
  • 250ml of standard 4% beer
  • 250ml of a standard 4% alcopop

How many units are in my drink?

  • Small glass white / rosé / red wine (125ml 12%) = 1.5 units
  • Standard glass white / rosé / red wine (175 ml 12%) = 2.1 units
  • Large glass white / red / rosé wine (250ml 12%) = 3 units
  • Pint of lager / beer / cider (5.2%) = 3 units
  • Bottle of lager / beer / cider (330ml 5%) = 1.7 units
  • Single small shot of spirits (25ml 40%) = 1 unit*

*taken from NHS Live Well Guidelines

Having your liver health checked after Christmas is a great way of tracking any changes that you may need to make to your lifestyle, for better or for worse – essential for helping you prevent disease and allowing you to take early action if it is diagnosed.

At Randox we offer a comprehensive menu of liver function tests to determine its health.  Provided by Randox to a wealth of hospitals, laboratories and research facilities across the globe, these tests are also directly available to you, the consumer, via our Randox Health clinics.

They include:

  • Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) – an enzyme mainly found in the liver. Liver injury or disease will release ALT into the bloodstream, thus elevating serum ALT levels.  Moderately high or mildly elevated ALT levels can be associated with chronic diseases, such as cirrhosis, which is scarring of the liver.
  • Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) – an enzyme found predominantly in the heart, liver and skeletal muscles. Cell injury or disease will release AST into the bloodstream, thus elevating blood AST levels. Increased AST levels may be associated with hepatitis (inflammation of the liver), cirrhosis, or drug-induced liver injury.
  • Gamma-Glutamyltransferase (GGT) – an enzyme found mainly in the liver. Increased levels of GGT in the blood may indicate bile duct injury, hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver necrosis (death of tissue), tumours or the use of drugs that are toxic to the liver.  A high GGT level is frequently associated with increased alcohol consumption, as this enzyme is involved in the breakdown and removal of alcohol from the body.
  • Glutamate Dehydrogenase (GLDH) – an enzyme located within the mitochondria (energy-producing machinery) of cells, particularly within liver tissue. Significant liver cell damage may cause release of GLDH into the bloodstream.  Toxic liver damage, liver cell necrosis or hypoxic liver disease (where liver cells are deprived of oxygen) may cause an increase in GLDH. Measurement of GLDH in combination with other liver markers may help distinguish between different causes of liver dysfunction.
  • Bilirubin – a yellowish-brown pigment found in bile. Increased levels may be associated with liver or bile duct blockage (eg due to gallstones), hepatitis, cirrhosis, trauma to the liver, a drug reaction, long-term alcohol abuse or rare inherited disorders (eg Dubin-Johnson syndrome which is characterised by mild jaundice).
  • Albumin – produced by the liver, albumin is the most abundant protein in the blood. Albumin plays in important role in maintaining blood pressure and transporting a wide variety of small molecules, such as hormones, vitamins and drugs, throughout the body. Various conditions are associated with decreased albumin levels, including kidney and liver diseases.
  • Copper – an essential mineral that plays a part in many enzyme systems within the body. Excess or deficiency of copper is very rare, however raised copper levels may be caused by chronic liver disease or acute hepatitis.

And when used in conjunction with the wide variety of other tests available within the world’s most comprehensive and personalised health testing menu, you can obtain an understanding of your full body health like never before.

That’s why we don’t test in isolation, which can give a patchy representation of your health and can fail to pick up on related symptoms elsewhere in the body. We test up to 350 tests across 25 areas of your health – giving you the power to take your health into your own hands.

Randox Health takes diagnostic service on the road


News       Packages        Testimonials

Randox Health Mobile Clinic

Do you know about our Mobile Health Service?

Clients of Randox Health are benefiting from “full-body MoTs” by providing blood samples in state-of-the-art Mobile Service clinics based on Mercedes-Benz Sprinters. The company’s phlebotomists use their strikingly styled vehicles to visit workplaces, gyms, private homes, and other locations, and provide an ultra-convenient service.

Randox Health is committed to identifying and preventing illness by detecting small changes in blood. Its patented diagnostic testing technology is capable of identifying up to 350 individual ‘biomarkers’ in a single sample. Randox Health operates clinics in Belfast, Liverpool and London, and introduced its first mobile unit in 2017. Such has been the demand from health-conscious clients throughout Ireland, that it has now added a second.

Based in Liverpool, the newer vehicle is from the latest-generation Sprinter range launched last year, which combines unprecedented levels of cab quality and comfort, with 4G wi-fi connectivity, and an industry-leading armoury of active and passive safety features. Like its predecessor, the 3.5-tonne 314 CDI L2 chassis cab was supplied by Intercounty Truck & Van, one of two members of the Mercedes-Benz Vans retail network whose parent company is Ballyvesey Holdings, of Newtownabbey, Northern Ireland.

Both vehicles’ purpose-designed bodies are the work of specialist coachbuilder Annard, of Loughall, County Armagh. Features include ‘pop out’ sections that address Randox Health’s requirement for additional floor space. With their aerodynamic enhancements, colour-coded door mirrors and bumpers, and alloy wheels, the Sprinters are real head-turners, and have attracted enthusiastic feedback from clients.

Explaining the rationale behind Randox Health’s decision to launch its mobile clinic service, Operations Manager Lauren Donaghy said: 

“Increasing demand from corporate clients and private individuals for our pioneering health checks meant we needed to come up with a solution which ensured they were accessible to all.

“Our mobile service was the answer, and by providing men and women, young and old, with what effectively amount to full-body MoTs, we’re now transforming the delivery of healthcare in the UK and Ireland.”

Lauren continued: “We provide a world-leading service, so naturally we were keen to partner with a world-leading automotive brand able to provide vehicles that offer the highest standards of reliability, comfort and safety.

“The name Mercedes-Benz is synonymous with quality, ingenuity and performance, so we knew it would be the perfect fit for our equally innovative and ambitious company. Ballyvesey Holdings, meanwhile, has worked with Mercedes-Benz for years, and came highly recommended. “With their bespoke design, the vehicles provide a perfect combination of phlebotomy functionality and patient comfort, while maintaining the look and feel of a high-end clinic room,” added Lauren Donaghy.

“People are able to book an appointment at a place of their choosing, and being able to undergo their health check in a luxurious Mercedes-Benz means the experience is first-class from start to finish.”

A world-leading health service

Mercedes-Benz Vans UK has been doing its bit to highlight issues of health and wellbeing affecting the UK’s community of van drivers, operators and owners, through its Business Barometer programme. In its latest bulletin, the manufacturer focused on poor quality diets and the apparent reluctance of many to visit a doctor, while previous instalments have covered everything from hydration in hot weather, to the affects of air pollution, and the high stress levels induced by a shortage of parking provision.

The Sprinter 314 CDI is powered by a fuel-efficient 2.1-litre common rail turbodiesel engine – although this model is now also available with front-wheel drive, as with its stablemate Randox Health’s new van transmits its 143 hp output via the rear wheels. Like all Mercedes-Benz vans, Randox Health’s Mobile Service vehicles are backed by three-year, unlimited mileage warranties and came with free MobiloVan cover, which includes round-the-clock emergency roadside assistance.

Randox Health: What We Do

Randox Health packages go beyond a health check. We have the world’s most comprehensive full-body health programmes available on the market today, thanks to Randox Biochips which enable hundreds of individual tests to be carried out from one sample and giving you truly unrivalled knowledge about your health and wellbeing both now and in the future. Your health matters to us and, above all, we are committed to improving healthcare worldwide by identifying and preventing illness at the earliest possible stage.

How we can help you

Identifying the very first signs and risks of disease can help prevent health problems that may be on the horizon. Randox Health aim to do this before the appearance of unpleasant symptoms or illness. Prevention is always better than cure. Long-term mild dehydration may have caused damage to your health and our packages tests for up to 350 different biomarkers.

Randox Health partners with Tim Cogley Cardiac Screening Foundation to offer free health checks in Wirral

Randox Health is today delighted to announce that it is partnering with the Tim Cogley Cardiac Screening Foundation to offer free health checks for young adults across Wirral.

On 9th April 2017 Tim Cogley, an apparently fit and healthy 34-year-old, suffered a fatal heart attack whilst walking home after a night out with friends.  Despite showing no symptoms, Tim had a 75% cholesterol blockage of the left descending coronary artery. Since then his family have set up the Tim Cogley Foundation to help raise awareness of coronary heart screening in 18 to 39-year-olds.

Throughout November, the charity, in association with Randox Health, will offer free health checks, including heart screening, to men and women between the ages of 18 and 39 in Wirral.

Appointments will last around 15 minutes and will involve blood pressure testing, body composition analysis and blood sampling to test for glucose concentration (relating to diabetes risk), lipid profile results (including important Total Cholesterol: HDL Cholesterol ratios), and additional key biomarkers relevant to CVD risk, including kidney function tests.

Participants aged 25 or over will also be provided with a unique Cardiovascular Risk Score, which details your risk of experiencing a cardiac event over the next 10 years.

Frank Cogley, Tim’s father, said of the cardiac screening:

“There are many types of heart disease. The national media sadly, but regularly, report instances of young people suddenly dying, as in the case of our youngest son Tim, from undiagnosed heart disease. The current lack of routine screening of 18-39 year olds leaves a gaping chasm in our healthcare provision but with our highly motivated partner, Randox Health, we hope to redress this through lifestyle changes and preventative health programmes.

 “The Tim Cogley Cardiac Screening Foundation is committed to delivering positive, action-focused and life-changing programmes.  The essence of the charity, and its whole approach of reaching out to help others, reflects Tim’s character and, in that sense, keeps alive his driving force. I can’t imagine a legacy more in tune with the generous, kind and supportive person that was Tim.”

 Dates for the screening are as follows:

  • Thursday, November 1 – 4pm to 8pm – Tesco, Telegraph Road, Heswall
  • Saturday, November 3 – 10am to 4pm – Tesco, Telegraph Road, Heswall
  • Tuesday, November 6 – 10am to 2pm – Warrens Medical Centre, Arrowe Park Road
  • Thursday, November 8 – 4pm to 8pm – UTS Foundation, Newhall Lane, Hoylake
  • Monday, November 12 – 10am to 2pm – Wirral Met 12 Quays Campus, Shore Road, Birkenhead
  • Wednesday, November 14 – 4pm to 8pm – Caldy Sports Club, Telegraph Road, Thurstaston
  • Saturday, November 17 – 10am to 2pm – Eastham Drop In Centre, 31 Eastham Rake
  • Tuesday, November 20 – 10am to 2pm – Warrens Medical Centre, Arrowe Park Road
  • Thursday, November 22 – 4pm to 8pm – UTS Foundation, Newhall Lane, Hoylake
  • Monday, November 26 – 10am to 2pm – Greasby Medical Centre, Greasby Road
  • Wednesday, November 28 – 4pm to 8pm – Drop In Centre, Victoria General Hospital, Marymount Close, Wallasey
  • Saturday, December 1 – 10am to 2pm – Wirral Met Oval Campus, Old Chester Road, Bebington

Dr Peter FitzGerald, Managing Director of Randox Health, commented:

“It is an honour to be partnering with Frank and the team at The Tim Cogley Cardiac Screening Foundation to offer young people across Wirral and Merseyside the chance to avail of the advanced health screening we provide at Randox Health. We know all too well the benefit of prevention over cure, and you need look no further than Frank Cogley who is working tirelessly to turn his son’s tragic death into a force for good to see how important this is.  It is so encouraging therefore to see how popular this initiative has proven thus far, and we are now adding further screening slots to our clinic in Exchange Station to accommodate the high demand.”

Further screening will take place at the Randox Health Liverpool Clinic, Tithebarn Street, Liverpool L2 2QP, so if you would like to participate please visit www.timcogleyfoundation.com/cardiac-screening to read the pre-screening information, and then call Randox Health on 0151 665 0700 to book your appointment.

During the month of November Randox Health Liverpool will also be offering free Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood tests in celebration of Movember, Men’s Health Month. Offering a pre-cursor to a physical examination, the Randox Health prostate health check can stratify patients who may need referred on for further testing.

Understanding your heart health with Randox Health

Today in the UK, on average, 530 people will be admitted to hospital with a heart attack – even though 75% of heart disease is preventable.

Why wait?

At Randox Health, we believe in preventing disease, instead of waiting for it to occur. We do this through our comprehensive health checks, which use innovative Randox technology to provide you with up to 350 test results, covering over 25 different areas within the body. One of those areas is the heart, by using our ‘Heart Health test panel’. This panel offers up to 21 tests, including a cardiovascular risk score, which assesses your risk of developing cardiovascular disease over the next 10 years.

Our Heart Health panel also measures apolipoproteins, which are proteins which bind cholesterol for transport around the body. Measuring apolipoproteins along with traditional cholesterol markers, such as LDL (bad) cholesterol and HDL (good) cholesterol, gives us a much more detailed understanding of your Heart Health, compared to using traditional cholesterol levels alone. A unique test in our panel can identify damage to heart muscle, which can occur with a heart attack.

It’s in the genes

As well as our comprehensive Heart Health panel, offered within our programmes, Randox Health also offer more specialised cardiac testing.

Taking cardiac risk assessment one step further, our Cardiac Risk Prediction testing can predict your risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) using not only traditional cholesterol and blood pressure measurements, but using advanced genetic testing. Such testing will combine various genetic tests known to be associated with increased risk of CHD, along with measurements such as blood pressure and cholesterol to calculate and provide you with an overall CHD risk score.

If you have high cholesterol, or heart disease runs in your family, you may benefit from our Familial Hypercholesterolaemia (FH) genetic screen. FH is a hereditary condition involving high cholesterol levels and a high risk of having a heart attack or stroke at a younger age. FH occurs in approximately 1 in every 250 people worldwide and it is thought that 90% of individuals with the condition remain undiagnosed! At Randox Health we recognise the importance of detecting this condition as early as possible; therefore, we offer testing which can check simultaneously for several genetic mutations known to be involved in FH. Early diagnosis and treatment of FH significantly improves and lengthens the lives of those affected, as well as saving the lives of their beloved family members.

To find out more, click here or call 0800 2545 130 and one of our team will be able to discuss this in more detail with you.

Instead of looking at isolated sections of your health, Randox Health takes a whole-body approach to your health, to not only be able to diagnose any existing conditions at an early stage, but also forecast any health problems in your future, enabling you to take a long-term view of your health.

This holistic style of testing ensures that the patient understands their full body health in the greatest detail possible.  Randox Health can analyse over 350 markers of health and disease within your body simultaneously, across 25 different aspects of your health, including heart health, diabetes health, thyroid, lung, digestive and nutritional health. The ability to carry out hundreds of tests combined in one check provides much more information and ultimately a more accurate diagnosis.

By determining your physiological and chemical wellbeing, the diseases at which you are personally at risk of developing in the future, and areas for improvement, you can embark on your Get Healthy Journey equipped with the knowledge and know-how used by the world’s best scientists.

And with results, a consultation with a Randox Health expert, and follow-up testing all included within your 12-month health programme, you can enter 2018 knowing that Randox Health will look after you every step of the way. Your health programme gives you the power to take control of your health, not leaving it to chance in 2018 or in the future.

Randox Health Holywood offers FREE prostate testing during Movember

Global healthcare firm Randox Health is celebrating Movember 2017 by offering free prostate health tests for every man who comes to its flagship clinic in Holywood.  Prostate cancer is the most common cause of cancer in men. If it is detected early enough, it has a 90% cure rate.

During the month Randox Health hopes to raise awareness of prostate health and to encourage men to take their health into their own hands, while also raising funds for the mental health charity Inspire NI, as an additional focal aspect of men’s health.

PSA screening is not carried out routinely on the NHS as the standard test is thought to be unreliable. However the Randox Health prostate blood test, worth £130, is more advanced and can provide a more accurate diagnosis. Typical testing measures the total Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) in the blood, however PSA can come in two forms: free and bound. Using the Randox Health PSA test, the amount of ‘free’ PSA is measured and compared to the amount of ‘bound’ PSA. Understanding this enables clients to gain a more comprehensive understanding of their prostate health.

Dr. Peter FitzGerald, Founder and Managing Director, Randox Health, commented;

“Prostate cancer is the most common cancer affecting men, and usually develops slowly. Many of us don’t know much about it and would rather not talk about it but it’s very easy to get information which can ultimately save your life. So throughout Movember I’d like to encourage men to come to our flagship clinic in Holywood to get our free test, and take control of your health. It’s our aim to help people live healthier for longer.”

Partnering with Randox Health to raise awareness of the importance of prostate checks are Garry’s Barber Shop in Holywood, the Belfast Harley Davidson’s Owners Club and the Harlandic Male Voice Choir.

The members of the choir, which was formed in 1944 by labourers of the Harland and Wolff shipyard, have this week each had their bloods taken in the Randox Health Clinic in Holywood, and in two days’ time will receive a comprehensive profile of their prostate health, enabling them to take appropriate preventive action should any problems be found. The check includes a complementary consultation where clients can discuss their results with one of Randox’s scientific experts.

Ken Banford, Chairman of the Harlandic Male Voice Choir, explained;

“As a male choir, we know all too well the reluctance to discuss our health, to open up about any issues we may be having, or even to book an appointment with our GP to do something about it.  A more proactive approach to our health is needed and we hope that by doing this with Randox Health, we can encourage others to take their health into their own hands.”

Free prostate testing at Randox Health Holywood must be booked in advance. No fasting required.  Results available after two working days.
