Prostate screening test

Did you know that prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer to affect males in the UK? According to Cancer Research UK, over 48,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year and Prostate Cancer UK states that 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed in their lifetime. This means that about 13% of males will receive a diagnosis of prostate cancer in their lifetimes. With the state pension age currently sitting at 66, but rising to 67 by 2028, it is likely that some of your workforce could be affected by prostate cancer. Offering prostate screening tests helps to raise awareness and encourages your employees to get themselves checked, or even speak to their friends and families about their potential risk.

Chambers UK 2017

When I saw Bruce last year I was in a very bad place mentally. For me personally, he came into my life at the right time and if it wasn’t for him I really don’t know if I would be here today. He listened to me and made other people listen and changes were made for the better which helped me, as it improved my life for me. I am in a much better place now and happier in my work and it’s all thanks to Bruce.

Employee

Thank you for the superb advice you have provided us with over the years.

Business Owner – Care Sector

I was an attendee of the course and after talking to my colleagues who were there we have all said how eye-opening and informative it was. We found a more interactive approach was beneficial as we could relate and draw from our own experiences.

App Developer

Your note was very clear about the seemingly complicated and tricky matter and was very helpful in forming our view. Thanks again for your valuable advice and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Finance Director, Manufacturing

Your approach is one of collaboration, taking your time to understand the issues, and our position, and then working proactively with us in a practical manner.

FD, Architecture Firm

I am highly appreciative of the advice and work I received from Joe Milner and the team at Loch Associates Group.

Joe assisted me with drafting complex supplier contracts and templates for my business and I cannot praise him enough. The work was thorough and Joe’s attention to detail showed he had taken time to really understand what was needed, suggesting ways to adapt them as necessary for our business.

All communications, including from the support team were clear and timely. It was interesting to hear they offer a retainer service, which means Joe can effectively work as the Company’s in-house counsel too, which is a useful service for a business of our size.

Thank you again!

Simon Adby, Nice Work

Bruce was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and made the 3 days training really enjoyable. His experience as a paramedic gave us 100% confidence that we were receiving the best possible training.

Business Travel Consultant

Bruce was a very engaging trainer, and very creative in his approach. He had his audience connecting very well. The training course was very interesting. Thank you, Bruce.

First Aid Feedback

A pragmatic and common-sense approach is a key factor in why I turn to the firm for advice.

Client

With his first-hand experience in dealing with all kinds of medical emergencies; Bruce is not only able to provide us with the latest guidelines and techniques but also the kind of personal support you need when facing the stressful situation of how you will react during a medical emergency.

Pieter, Dentist

When should employees start getting prostate screening tests?

There is no definitive rule for starting testing. Men who are in higher risk groups (those with family history of prostate cancer, who are of African or Caribbean descent, or who are showing symptoms) are advised to get a baseline test around age 40. For men of average risk, it is recommended to begin testing around age 50. Once a person begins testing, it is advised that they have a test at least once every two years.

How does employee prostate screening benefit the rest of the workforce?

Although businesses often provide top-level health screening just to directors or executive roles, the implementation of prostate screenings has far-reaching impacts and benefits for the rest of the company. Companies can provide basic levels of prostate screenings to other employees, creating a widespread environment of health and wellbeing.

Listed are a few examples of the benefits of companies implementing employee health screening:

  • Helps to build trust, reinforcing the company’s commitment to employees by showing concern and care
  • Promotes health awareness
  • Prevention through early detection
  • Short, convenient, can take place at work
