NHS Health Checks

Diabetes and cardiovascular disease are two of the most common health conditions in the UK.  The NHS Health Check Service involves a one-to-one consultation with our pharmacist to work out your chances of developing these conditions and helps you come up with a plan to reduce this risk.  Your free NHS Health Check will take place in a private consultation room and lasts about 30 minutes.

Patients not eligible for free NHS check can have one done privately for £25

NHS Service. We all know smoking is very harmful to our health but giving up can be hard. The Pharmacist is an Accredited Stop Smoking Advisor and can give you counselling about stopping smoking.  We can issue you with the appropriate anti-smoking products from the pharmacy such as nicotine replacement patches, gum and nasal sprays. People who pay for prescriptions pay the NHS charge at each supply. If you are exempt from prescription fees you do not need to pay.
