Mills & Reeve is offering its staff access to a new health screening and wellbeing service.

From April employees at the law firm's Birmingham office will have the opportunity to take a comprehensive set of tests designed to help optimise health and reduce the risk of developing major health problems in the future.

The new benefit, which will be rolled out across Mills & Reeve's other five offices this year, is funded via a salary sacrifice arrangement and is designed to be accessible to everyone at £5.00 a month.

The screening, offered in conjunction with health screening company Screenetics, comprises a set of non-invasive tests with instant results, all carried out within a 60-minute session in the workplace.

The tests include an in-depth analysis of cholesterol, diabetes, body fat, cardiac risk assessment, a prostate blood test for men, and a full-body composition test, including a bone density scan to test for osteoporosis.

Employees will also have a lifestyle assessment and an action plan to help maintain good health, and will be able to access and track their results confidentially online.
Samantha Neaves, reward manager at Mills & Reeve, said: "Many people are too busy to take time out for regular health checks, but we are keen to encourage our employees to get and stay healthy."
