About this service.
Pharmacy 777 Health Checks are designed to identify some early warning signs for chronic disease and help you stay healthy. You’ll receive instant results and an assessment of your risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease over the next 5 years.
Why is a Health Check important?
Chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes are largely preventable through early screening and lifestyle modifications. A Health Check can help identify your risk of developing these conditions. Your Pharmacist will explain your results and provide lifestyle advice on how to reduce your risk.
