Blood Pressure Check:

With cardiovascular diseases being on the rise, it is essential to have regular blood pressure checkups. Many people in the UK are completely unaware they suffer from high blood pressure. If left untreated, the condition can lead to heart disease, stroke and other serious conditions. It is recommended that everyone should have their blood pressure checked at least every 3-5 years, and more often as you get older, or if you have been previously diagnosed with high blood pressure, or if you suffer from conditions such as diabetes or high cholesterol. We offer a free and quick service that will take literally minutes to obtain reliable results.

Chlamydia Testing:

NHSChlamydia is on the increase in young people. Quite often, people don’t suffer from any symptoms, and so the condition goes untreated and further spread. If you have ever had unprotected sex, you may be at risk and so should get tested. If you are under 25, we can offer a completely free and confidential testing with results being directly texted to you. Should the need arise, we can also offer free treatment, as well as offer to contact and treat to current or ex-partner, without the need for testing, on your behalf.

Emergency hormonal contraception:

NHSAccidents can always happen, and this can make things very stressful. To give that extra bit of reassurance, all of our full time full time pharmacists are able to supply the morning after pill, and if you are under 20, this can be obtained for free. Please ask in store for more details and for our up-to-date competitive price if you need to purchase the medicine

Gluten free food supply: 

NHSDo you require a gluten free diet? Often, choice and variety can be limited, meaning having to eat the same foods over and over. We offer a wide range of gluten free food, most of which we can order and have ready for collection within 24 hours! Please ask in store to view our full catalogue of food.

Flu Vaccination:

For most people contracting the flu virus is unlikely to lead to serious complications but you will probably suffer the consequences of missed social events and disruptions to your professional career, as well as the added stress associated with being unwell.

By protecting yourself against flu, you will be protecting those more vulnerable to complications like your children or elderly relatives.

Seasonal flu vaccinations are available for only £12.50. Contact your nearest branch today to book your appointment.
