PocDoc's Commitment to Community Health

PocDoc's 5-Lipid marker panel is an example of how PocDoc addresses community cardiovascular screening problems. Dr. Bunyan envisions the PocDoc platform bridging the gap in healthcare access, targeting high-risk individuals, especially in rural areas with limited access to GP surgeries and providing the necessary tools for cardiovascular disease prevention across the United Kingdom.

“Knowing your numbers” isn’t enough. People only change their behaviours when they understand why they need to. PocDoc’s lipid panel does more than just give you the values relating to your lipids, it turns those data points into information relevant and understandable to you personally. That gives you your ‘why’ to change your behaviour and reduce your risks”
