Siemens adds cancer checks to flexible benefits scheme

Siemens has added breast exams and skin checks to its flexible benefits scheme, My Choice, for 2012, as part of a wider approach to health and wellbeing.

Isy Raza, My Choice specialist at Siemens, said: “As a company, we are aware of the rising incidence of breast and skin cancer, and the impact this has on our employees and the business.

“Almost as important as the screening is the education and guidance provider HealthScreen UK’s specialist clinicians give each individual. The pricing structure also means that these services are readily accessible.’

John Picken, managing director at HealthScreen UK, added: “We are really pleased to be working with such a forward-thinking employer as Siemens in developing its health and wellbeing strategy.

“By offering these benefits, not only is it protecting its employees and the business, it is supporting the government strategy on cancer, ‘Improving Outcomes’.”
