When you think of pharmacies, you might just think of collecting your prescriptions or picking up some allergy or pain relief. But, at LloydsPharmacy we offer a range of health checks and services you might not know about, to help you keep on top of your health.
From getting screened for your risk of type 2 diabetes, to having your blood pressure checked or a chance to talk through your medication. We have a range of health checks and services available to you.
Blood Pressure Monitoring
High blood pressure rarely has noticeable symptoms, so i’ts important to get yours checked to find out whether you’re at risk of developing high blood pressure. That’s why we offer a quick, easy and confidential Blood Pressure Check.
A 15 minute check can identify your risk of developing a heart condition in the next ten years. The check measures your cholesterol levels, your blood pressure, BMI and is then followed by a review of your lifestyle. Your results will be reviewed, and you will be given a personalised action plan on how to keep your heart healthy.
Anyone can catch flu. That’s why it’s worth getting vaccinated to protect you and your family. We offer this service at over 1,000 of our stores and there’s no need to book an appointment. You may also be eligible for the FREE NHS flu vaccine.
Hearing loss can come on gradually as you get older, but it can sometimes happen suddenly. If you’re worried about hearing loss, as in selected stores we offer a FREE simple automated test that takes about 10 minutes and can offer a solution to improve your hearing.

We’ve been offering this service for more than 10 years and have carried out over 1.7 million diabetes screenings. We can help if you feel that you might be at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. You will be asked a series of questions to assess your risk of developing the condition, a member of our healthcare team may also measure your blood pressure and take a small finger prick sample of blood. Once you’ve be screened, one of our healthcare team will give you advice on how to reduce your risk, ask you to come back for further assessment or may refer you to your GP.
We understand just how important it is to be protected when you’re heading off on your travels. That’s why we’ve partnered with MASTA who have thirty five years experience in travel health. Once you’ve had a phone consultation with a specialist MASTA travel nurse your subsequent vaccination appointment can then take place at a participating LloydsPharmacy store, or your local MASTA clinic. Discover the vaccines needed for your trip at LloydsPharmacy.MASTA.com and book your nurse led travel consultation.
