Personal diagnostics and health platform Thriva has announced a two-year nationwide partnership, to bring its diagnostic testing to Superdrug Health Clinics across the country.
The partnership will enable Superdrug to offer Thriva’s health diagnostics to its in-clinic health testing, providing customers with personalised health reports and advice from GPs based on test results. This will be delivered through the Thriva Solutions platform and increase access to health diagnostics.
An extensive range of health test kits will be offered to Superdrug customers, including Thriva’s newly launched antibody tests for chickenpox, Hepatitis B and MMR.
Chloe Anderson, head of healthcare services at Superdrug, said: “For the last 14 years, our Health Clinics have been at the forefront of offering market-leading and accessible healthcare provision to customers on the high street. Working with Thriva will enable our clinics to continue to deliver even greater health testing to their patients.”
Thriva Solutions is the new diagnostics-as-a-service platform, which allows healthcare organisations to deliver diagnostics at scale.
Via the platform’s online booking tool, Superdrug will offer its customers a venous draw service. This will enable customers to purchase a health testing kit and book a blood test with a nurse remotely.
It aims to help people understand their physical health. Plus, with advice from NHS-registered GPs they are supported to make informed decisions about their health and lifestyle choices going forwards. Ultimately Thriva Solutions aims to help people spot the warning signs of disease as early as possible, leading to positive lifestyle and behaviour changes.
Hamish Gierson, CEO and co-founder of Thriva, said: “This partnership with Superdrug is an important milestone for Thriva. By expanding our reach through diagnostics solutions and leveraging Superdrug’s presence on the British high street, we are significantly enhancing accessibility to health testing.”
Superdrug has previously partnered with My Online Therapy during the pandemic in order to increase access to mental health services.
