Why Pink and Blue Power?

There is currently no official national prostate or breast assessment service available in Ireland for these age groups. Unfortunately, cancer knows no bounds: 

  • 26% of women diagnosed with Breast Cancer are under age 50* 
  • Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in Ireland*  
  • 1 in 9 women diagnosed with Breast Cancer during their life*
  • Prostate Cancer is the second most common cancer in men in Ireland**
  • 1 in 7 men are diagnosed with Prostate Cancer during their life**

When we noticed a high level of cancer claims amongst our customers, we wanted to do something to help, so we teamed up with some of Ireland's top medical experts to design Pink and Blue Power. This is a potentially life-saving breast and prostate health assessment service. By the end of 2018, we will have rolled out this service to 31,000 Cornmarket customers nationwide through a number of our Schemes***

To date, 17 Cornmarket customers have been diagnosed with cancer through the service. Thankfully, their outlook is positive due to early intervention. 

How the service works

The service has been set up so it's as easy as possible to book - It's all done online. The initial GP assessment only takes 15 minutes. If further investigation is required, members' will get a rapid referral to the participating private hospital; Beaumont Private Clinic (Pink Power) or Bon Secours Private Hospital, Dublin (Blue Power). 

The cost of the referral, 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 an excellent example of how early detection and intervention is critical in the fight against breast and prostate cancer. If one life can be saved through the initiative, it will all be worthwhile.

For more information and full terms and conditions, please read the guide which will be sent in the post with your invite if you are eligible to avail of the service.
