IncolinkBus – An Onsite GP Service

The IncolinkBus delivers physical health programs to screen construction workers on site for prostate cancer, skin cancer and chronic illnesses. It was launched in June 2019.

The service is fully funded by Incolink and aims to help tackle the rate of prostate cancer in men, as well as other health issues that affect male and female workers in the construction industry.

The Incolink Bus is improving health outcomes for construction workers by taking the doctor to them, and is fast becoming the industry’s most sought after health innovation.

Bluehats – Let’s Talk

Since 2016/2017 the building and construction industry has been troubled by an increasing number of reported suicides. Incolink’s Critical Incident response service saw an increase in critical incidents due to suicide from one every six months in 2016, to around one every month by late 2018.

By working with the construction industry Incolink developed the Bluehats Suicide Prevention Initiative. The goal of the program is to help workers who are experiencing suicidal thoughts by creating a culture of talking about the issue. Employers, stakeholders and unions have shown strong support for the program and commitment to encouraging all workers to participate.

Incolink provides a range of physical and mental health and wellbeing services for our members and their families
