NHS Health Checks

NHS Health Checks: Are you between 40 and 74 years of age, and not already seeing your GP with diabetes or a heart or kidney condition, then you may be entitled to a FREE! Health Check on the NHS.

The service is identical to the one that may be provided at your GP Surgery, and is carried out by our trained staff in the privacy of our consultation room at the pharmacy.

The NHS Health Check is available free every 5 years to eligible patients between 40 & 74, and only takes about 30 minutes.

We will undertake a few simple tests- Blood Pressure, Cholesterol test & Blood Sugar test (both of which will either require a small finger-prick sample or blood tests via your GP, depending on which of our pharmacies you use), Height and Weight measurements, and the completion of a lifestyle questionnaire.

We then use these results to assess your risk of developing long-term conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease.

We can work with you to make suggestions that can improve your outcomes and where appropriate, we can refer you to Specialist Support Services.

Our customers have generally found us more accessible for this service, because of our later opening hours and being open on Saturdays, in most cases, and you do not have to wait ages to get an appointment for this service.

So, if you are between 40 and 74, you live in the Dudley area and you have not had a Health Check in the last 5 years, check out this service from one of our pharmacies listed below.
