PSA TESTING UPDATE
PCaSO have been running PSA testing events for some nine years but because of the COVID-19 crisis we have cancelled all events for 2020. For some events you may see advertising by supporting groups e.g. Lions or Masons that had already been scheduled for publication prior to this decision
However, there is now an option if you would like to have a PSA test and cannot get to your GP.
Our partners in the testing program, Graham Fulford Charitable Trust (GFCT), offer a personal PSA testing blood collection kit developed by a private pathology service, The Doctors Laboratory (TDL), London.
It consists of a DIY blood collection kit, taking blood from a finger prick and posting it to TDL, they will test the blood and return the PSA result to GFCT, who will evaluate it and send you the standard green, amber, or red result letter as usual. The kit contains all necessary equipment – blood vial, lancets, sterilising swabs, plasters, return postage container and instructions and can be purchased for £22.99.
If you are already on their computer system from a previous PCaSO event, they will compare the result with your past PSA result and advice accordingly.
During August GFCT will send out an email to all men who have been tested by PCaSO in the last year or so, asking if they would like to order a test kit.
The kits can be ordered from GFCT through PCaSO at https://pcaso.mypsatests.org.uk/
PCaSO is not involved in any of the financial and administrative processing and does not receive any of this money, or any commission. It is all undertaken by GFCT.
You must either register, or login with GFCT, if you already have an account with them, before you can order your home testing kit.
Hopefully we can return to our normal PSA testing events some time in 2021.
