Health check-up

A Health Check helps to measure you risk of developing certain health problems and can help spot any early signs of conditions such as; stroke, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and kidney disease.

Our healthcare professionals can offer advice to help you to prevent these conditions developing in the future.

What happens in a Health Check?

A healthcare professional, or in store pharmacist, will ask you a series of simple questions about your lifestyle and family history. The check is nothing to worry about and you won’t be asked any embarrassing questions or need to remove clothing.

You can also expect:

- A blood pressure test
- Your weight and height measured
- A finger prick blood test for your blood sugar and cholesterol levels

What does the Health Check look out for?

The Health Check focusses on your risk of:
- Heart disease
- Diabetes
- Strokes
- Kidney disease
- If you are over 65, you will also be told the signs of dementia to look out for

What will my results tell me?

After your Health Check, the healthcare professional will be happy to offer lifestyle advice or suggest you visit your GP, if needed. They might offer ideas on how to:
- Improve your diet
- Increase your levels or frequency of physical activity
- How to stop smoking or lose weight

How long does this service take?
