Cholesterol Testing

The free cholesterol test allows patients to find out their cholesterol readings and what this means for their health. High levels of some cholesterol types have been linked to an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.

Overview

This free service accurately measures a patients cholesterol level by a blood sample taken by a finger prick. The cholesterol result will be interpreted by one of our trained pharmacy staff members, who will give the patient information on what the result means for their health and how to improve the result if needed.

Benefits

This service is free and allows patients to promptly and accurately find out if their cholesterol result is out of a normal range. The test does not require an appointment, however, ideally please speak to a pharmacist before you wish to come in for the test, as you may be advised to have the test first thing in the morning and before you have your breakfast.
