HRA Plus – Wellness in the Workplace
The statistics around the wellbeing of the UK adult population make for shocking reading:
- Over half of adults in the UK have elevated blood cholesterol levels
- Around a quarter of adults in the UK are obese and in addition more than a third are overweight (using BMI)
- Cardiovascular disease (CVD) causes more than a quarter of all deaths in the UK.
- Nearly 3.5 million adults in the UK have been diagnosed with diabetes
- The economic burden of CVD is estimated to be over £15 billion each year in the UK
- Over 1.1 million people in the UK have been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation
As we get older we have a higher risk of developing conditions like high blood pressure, heart disease or type 2 diabetes. HRA+ Well Person Health Check can spot the early signs and help prevent these happening, ensuring individuals will be more likely to enjoy a healthy life for longer.
Our Well Person Assessment follows exactly the same principles as the NHS Health Check for 40-74 year olds but with the added flexibility of being conducted at a time and venue of your choice and it can be run for any age group. Our sophisticated health check is often referenced as a “Body MOT” as it runs diagnostic tests on some of the bodies most crucial systems.
Blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, height, weight are just some of the simple tests we conduct and the results help us to detect potential problems early. Early detection can ensure early intervention and treatment, drastically reducing the likelihood of further disease development or serious side effects and complications.
Thousands of UK adults have already undergone these tests and on average 9 in every 1,000 were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, 4 in every 1,000 were cases of chronic kidney disease and 38 in every 1,000 cases of hypertension. As a result 19.3% are now prescribed statins and 8.8% prescribed antihypertensive therapy. (Source: NHS)

HRA+ qualified nursing practitioners provide a mobile service that can work onsite with you ensuring minimal disruption to the working day. The HRA+ Well Person Health Check is a comprehensive individualised screening service that tests for indicators of key conditions e.g. cholesterol, CVD, Stroke, Diabetes, Obesity, Hypertension and Kidney disease.
Our core data comes from a Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) which is considered one of the most reliable and accessible methods of screening body fat. In conventional BIA, a person is weighed, then height, age, gender and weight or other physical characteristics such as body type, physical activity level, ethnicity, etc. are entered in a computer.
We feed the data we gain from our tests into the QRisk2 Program and provide employees with a record of their test results. These results are handed over in a personalised 1:1 consultation, supported by recommendations for wellbeing and lifestyle changes, and where required, a referral letter for the individuals GP.
For the employer – A confidential, anonymous report will be produced for you so you can get an overview of your staff’s wellbeing. For many companies, a visit six to twelve months later is a very successful way to measure improvements in staff’s health and wellbeing.
The cost for a full health check is £45 per person (based on a minimum of 10 employees)
