In 2012, we teamed up with some of Ireland's top medical experts to build Pink & Blue Power, a pioneering, life-saving health assessment and education programme**.
Pink & Blue Power provides vital life-saving education, and a once-off health assessment, to women aged 30-49 and men between age 40 - 65. The aim of Pink & Blue Power is to promote awareness by providing information on the signs and symptoms of breast and prostate cancer.
Cornmarket is proud to be part of the programme** and on behalf of insurers has invited 44,000 customers to participate so far.*

The Covid-19 pandemic is unlike anything we have ever experienced before. Many of us are feeling anxious about our own health and the health of loved ones, and it’s understandable to feel cautious about an upcoming appointment at a medical centre or at a hospital. Despite the fear of Covid-19, medical professionals are recommending that routine check-ups should be kept on the calendar. Such appointments are important in finding potential health issues before they become a problem, as many health risks can only be detected by a physical exam. Maintaining routine check-ups can enable early detection of health conditions, and therefore early treatment. Information regarding Covid-19 protocols for the Pink and Blue Power Programme** appointments can be found in the Pink and Blue Power guide and FAQ booklet located on this page.
Important: While some participants are diagnosed with breast or prostate cancer through the programme, it is not a screening programme. The assessment provided only reflects a point in time. No test or exam will pick up every case of breast cancer or prostate cancer. Therefore, if you have signs and/or symptoms that are concerning for breast or prostate cancer, now or in the future, please consult with your own GP without delay. Please read the guide and FAQ booklet above before you book.
