At Broadway Pharmacy, we firmly believe that prevention is better than cure.
Everyone is at risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, stroke and dementia at some point in their life. Developing one of these conditions also increases your risk of developing another in the future. There are certain things that will put you at even greater risk of developing health problems, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, being overweight, lack of physical activity and smoking.
The good news is that these conditions can often be prevented. Our health checks look at some of the major risk factors for conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. Our health checks involve taking your medical and family history as well as a number of measurements including carrying out a finger-prick cholesterol test. We analyse the results and provide you with personalised advice on how you can reduce these risks. We can also, if necessary, refer you to local health services to help you stay healthy.
If you are aged between 40 and 74 you may be eligible for an NHS Health Check here at the pharmacy free of charge! If you don't fall into the eligibility criteria we can provide you with an identical health check for just £30.
