FSB Members The Pamper Lounge in Thirsk have launched a unique linkage with their local GP surgery that could save lives.
The Pamper Lounge is an award winning wellbeing salon who decided to join FSB for the wide range of vital business services provided to members along with the online and face-to-face support; they also wanted to be part of their local community.
As a local business, they feel inspired to give something back to the local community and to be productive in encouraging women to attend smear screening appointments.
From personal experience, Nicole Bulter, Pamper Lounge’s Managing Director, realised how important it is to attend screening – her Grandmother attended for a smear, was treated for early-stage cervical cancer; the early detection saved her life!
Early detection can save lives and to encourage local women to attend screening, they have teamed up with their local GP Surgery in Thirsk and are offering a reward of 10% off treatments to clients who have attended their appointment, as a way of encouraging women to have their cervical smear test.
The incentive scheme has not only raised awareness of cervical cancer, but it’s also got the Pamper Lounge’s name out to new clients who wouldn’t have heard of our business before.
They hope that other local businesses will follow in their footsteps – it would be amazing if all businesses in the country could get involved. Think of the number of lives it would save!
