Health First Surrey is delighted to offer the very latest in early cancer detection testing services for patients in Surrey.
We offer a range of Trucheck screens for breast cancer, prostate cancer, and colon cancer and a Trucheck Intelli multi-cancer test.
Approximately 4.4 million new cancers are detected every year in Europe with some cancer detection only discovered at later more advanced stages which can result in more intensive and expensive treatments and a greater risk of side effects. Early detection is vital for the chance of early, less invasive treatments and successful outcomes.
Trucheck is an advanced, non-invasive, and comprehensive blood test which can help detect cancers based on the presence of Circulating Tumor Cells (CTC’s). Trucheck testing and technologies are the results of many years of collaborative international clinical research and innovation – designed, tested, and approved by the FDA.
A blood test that can help detect cancers based on presence of Circulating Tumor Cells (also known as CTCs).
Asymptomatic adult men and women (who are a minimum age of 18 or older).
Blood samples are evaluated for presence of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) which can be analysed to identify organ/tissue of origin.
Not all cancer tests are available on the NHS. Appointments through HFS are available locally to you.
Trucheck is designed to be used in addition to, and not replace conventional screening.

Frequently Asked Questions
- Does Trucheck detect the ‘existence of cancer’ or ‘possibility of cancer’?
It detects the ‘existence of cancer’.
- Does Trucheck replace conventional cancer screening like mammography?
Trucheck is not intended to be and should not be considered as a replacement for any Standard of Care screening tests.
- Does a ‘negative’ Trucheck result mean that I am ‘totally’ cancer free?
Within the limits of error, a ‘negative’ result is a reasonable indication of undetectable cancer of the type covered by the test. For other cancers not covered by the test, no inference should be drawn from a ‘negative’ result.
- Does a ‘negative’ Trucheck result mean that I am free from cancer forever?
A ‘negative’ result means that at the time of the test, there were no detectable cancer cells circulating in the blood.
- How frequently should Trucheck be repeated?
As Trucheck is a non-invasive blood test, there is no disadvantage in frequent testing. However, we advise that Trucheck should be performed every 12 months in case of every negative result.
- Is Trucheck recommended for a person suspected to have/has symptoms of cancer?
No, such individuals should seek expert medical advice without delay.
- Can Trucheck be used to monitor recurrence after cancer treatment?
