We asked Natasha what makes Medichecks different.

Dr Natasha Fernando:

“The people at Medichecks are pioneers — establishing the UK’s first direct-to-consumer blood testing service. As we grow and evolve, we stay true to our vision to be part of everyone’s health journey. I love being part of a team that’s empowering people to take ownership of their health and it's a privilege to support our customers to do this.

Knowing more about your health is a powerful motivator to take positive action and Medichecks makes this knowledge accessible. I’m passionate about preventative healthcare and taking a holistic approach to wellness. I follow these principles in my own life — for instance, I love cooking meals packed with superfoods for my family. And I’m dedicated to supporting others to make positive changes that can help them live longer, healthier lives.”
