Booking the service is simple and can be done online. You will then be given a time and date for an initial GP assessment which only takes 15 minutes. If further steps are needed, members get rapid referral to either Beaumont Private Clinic (Pink Power) or Bon Secours Private Hospital, Dublin (Blue Power).
Referral costs, and any scans or biopsies required, are fully covered under the member's Cornmarket policy (unless they have health insurance that covers some of the tests). Pink and Blue Power is a lesson in how early detection and intervention, as well as education is vital in battling breast and prostate cancer. If one life can be saved, it will all be worthwhile.

By the end of 2018, we will have rolled out this service to 31,000 Cornmarket customers nationwide, through a number of our Schemes***.

Sadly there is no official national prostate or breast assessment service available in Ireland for these age groups. And as we know, cancer affects all ages.
There was a big rise in cancer claims among our customers. We wanted to do more than just provide cover. So in 2012, with Ireland's top medical experts, we built Pink & Blue Power, a pioneering, life-saving assessment and education service.
