A British health testing company backed by Zoopla's Alex Chesterman has secured £6m in new funds as it seeks to ease some of the pressure from the NHS.

Thriva, which has developed home blood test kits for people to measure things such as their hormone and mineral levels, said it was on track to double its turnover this year, and that it would soon raise more cash to allow it to enter into new markets.

"We see the consequence of helping people to maintain thriving health as alleviating a huge amount of pressure on the existing global healthcare systems," said chief executive and co-founder Hamish Grierson.

"The problem here in the UK is a problem we see globally in pretty much every country," he added, although declined to say which regions Thriva would look to enter next.
