Hampton Knight

Hampton Knight are experts in the field of alcohol and drug screening throughout the UK and also deliver Occupational Health services to their customers.

The Hampton Knight brand is particularly synonymous with the alcohol and drug screening area of expertise and for the quality of their delivery in this regard. It is, therefore, our intention to retain, and indeed grow, the Hampton Knight brand within the Medigold Health Group of companies. It is our aim to leverage the enhanced resources of the Medigold Health Group to help the Hampton Knight brand become the leading provider of choice when it comes to alcohol and drug screening services across the UK. This will enable Medigold Health to bring this area of our service provision entirely in-house and ensure that responsibility for the delivery of this key service line is firmly within our control. This will have a positive impact on all Medigold Health customers who regularly utilise the Alcohol and Drug Testing element of our service provision.

Chris Wakeham & Joanne Hughes of Hampton Knight commented;

We are very proud to be joining the Medigold Health family and continuing our focus on raising the profile of Alcohol and Drug Testing Services within the new Group. Hampton Knight was established in May 2000 and is also a family business with our people very much at the core of who we are.

From our time spent with the wider Senior Team within Medigold Health, it is clear to see the passion everyone has for delivering a service that doesn’t follow the typical ‘model’ and that constantly strives to improve how corporate healthcare provision should be delivered.

For us it was this that really excited us and made us decide that we wanted Hampton Knight to be part of the ongoing success of Medigold Health. We firmly believe our focus on the Alcohol and Drug Testing Services, coupled with the support of being part of a dynamic, forward thinking business will allow us to take Hampton Knight to the next level in terms of its growth and standing in its market sector, whilst giving our people a new opportunity to also grow and flourish.
