Interview with Thomas Oliver, Founder and CEO at Health and Wellbeing Platform: Omnos

Omnos is a leading health and wellbeing platform designed to encourage a greater focus on preventative care by offering a vast suite of at-home tests.

These include blood markers, genetic differences, gut health, hormones, environmental toxins (pollutants) and elements (heavy metals).

Our groundbreaking system is the first cross-analysis algorithm of its kind that merges various test results with symptom analysis and peer-reviewed health studies in one place to provide a full picture.

This allows you to take greater control of your own health and wellbeing, and arms you with the knowledge you need to make practical changes to your lifestyle.


What’s the idea behind the company?

The current healthcare model in the UK is at breaking point. It is more centred around treating symptoms rather than tackling the root cause.

The system is so overwhelmed with treating people with illnesses that it fails to help prevent those illnesses from occuring in the first place.

At Omnos, we believe prevention is better than a cure and that you are the architect of your own health and wellbeing.

There’s no one-size-fits-all silver bullet when it comes to health optimisation, you need to listen and learn from your own body to find what will work for you.

We think it’s important to open up a conversation on democratising health, decentralising health, and taking control of your own health.


How has the company evolved over the past few years?

Our platform first went live in September 2020, during the Covid-19 pandemic, so like most businesses we had to adapt our working practices towards greater remote working and flexibility.

At first we were an online-only operation and the focus was very much on growing the brand and our digital operations.

However, we are moving towards retail as we look to continue improving our customer experience and providing more pre-purchase guidance and support.

This gives us face-to-face time with customers and the ability to build further connections and have more conversations.

This is an exciting venture for us as we move away from online-only and towards diversifying our offering.

What can we expect to see from Omnos in the future?

It’s an incredibly exciting time for us right now as we continue to evolve, and this year we have been working hard on some important projects.

In May, we released our new system that allows us to take vast amounts of data and information to provide a complete picture of your health and wellbeing in one place.

Omnos connects the dots between different tests’ results and that comprehensive picture we give our users makes us stand out from other at-home testing companies.

In summer, we made our first move into the high street with our partnership at Selfridges, which will see 11 of our at-home tests available in stores.

We firmly believe Omnos is the future of at-home health testing, offering the most compressive suite of tests on the market.

As people increasingly look to take their health and wellbeing into their own hands, we want to continue Omnos’ growth as a major player in the health technology industry
