Kepple Lane Pharmacy will be providing walk-in sessions for the Free NHS Health Checks, in the Green Room.
This is available to anyone who meets the following criteria:
- Aged 40 – 74
- Not already seeing your GP with diabetes or a heart or kidney condition
- Not had an NHS Health Check in the last 5 years
- Live or work in Lancashire
Each assessment takes only 15 – 20 minutes and is carried out by the trained Kepple Lane Pharmacy team. On the day the following tests will be carried out:
- Blood Pressure
- Cholesterol test
- Blood Sugar test
The tests will require a small finger-prick sample, height and weight measurements, and the completion of a lifestyle questionnaire. They will use these results to assess your risk of developing long-term conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease.
The team will work with you to make suggestions that can improve your outcomes and where appropriate, they can refer you to Specialist Support Services.
