Vala partners with home-test kit provider ‘LetsGetChecked’, offering you a 20% discount on all home testing kits.

At Vala Health, we are constantly looking for innovative ways to make healthcare accessible to all. We are therefore delighted to announce that we have partnered with ‘LetsGetChecked’ to offer you a 20% discount on home testing kits that you can order directly from their website. To apply the discount, simply enter ‘valahealth’ during the checkout process at www.letsgetchecked.com. You’ll receive your home testing kit the next day and can follow the simple instructions within the box to get started.

Why home testing?

Some people may have concerns about certain symptoms but can’t find the time to visit a doctor to be tested. The process of testing for STIs, fertility issues and certain forms of cancer is as simple as a quick urine, spit or blood test. But waiting times can be an issue when going through your GP and you may be embarrassed about requesting a test through your doctor. 

LetsGetChecked offers home testing kits that provide accurate results in a matter of days. The process is safe, easy and confidential. The testing kit is sent to you in the post, with clear instructions on how to use it and what to expect. Your results are available online in a secure portal that only you can access and view. A member of the LetsGetChecked team of nurses will also contact you to talk through the results, and offer lifestyle or dietary recommendations.

Complete control of your healthcare

The greatest benefit of home testing kits is that they give you full control of your healthcare. You decide when you want to perform your test, send back the results and access your results from the comfort of your home via their website. The process is extremely slick and uses clever technology to make sure it’s intuitive and easy to use.

For many conditions, early detection is key. So if you’re concerned about symptoms or suspect you may have an STI, it’s really important to get it checked. Home testing kits can give you immeasurable peace of mind, without needing to visit your doctor.

Common conditions that are covered by the home testing kits include most STIs, Cholesterol, Diabetes, Coeliac Disease, Bowel Cancer, Lyme Disease and Vitamin Deficiency. You can view a full list of conditions that are covered on our website.

If your results show that you need further investigation by a doctor, you have several options. You can make an appointment with your regular GP and continue the process from there. Or you can register for Vala Health and book an appointment for our video chat.

It’s important to note that home testing kits do not constitute medical advice and are not intended to replace the medical advice that Vala can provide. If you would like medical advice related to your test results, you should book an appointment with one of our doctors to discuss the results.
