At Fortune’s Pharmacy we believe your health is your wealth. Our new Carepoint Health Screening service will help you take control of that wealth. By availing of one of our health screening checks you can get piece of mind about your health or prevent further problems down the line through early identification of any health risks. Health screening can often detect problems before any symptoms become apparent.
Tests provided include –
- Blood Pressure
- 24-hour Blood Pressure
- Body Mass Index
- Waist Measurement
- Lung Age
- Carbon Monoxide
Contact a member of our Pharmacy Team for further details.
A quick health assessment will be done in our consultation area before tests are carried out. With our cholesterol screening service we recommend that you fast overnight. Some tests require signed consent for a blood sample.
Most tests take only a few minutes and results are available immediately. One of our trained pharmacists will go through your results in detail and answer any questions you may have.
If any of your results lie outside desired limits you will be advised to contact your GP for follow-up and further investigation, if needed. We will provide you with a copy of your results which you may wish to bring with you. Your results will be retained by us in accordance with our data retention policy and current national guidelines.
Do I need to make an appointment?
We provide blood pressure checks on a drop-in basis. We recommend that you make an appointment with us for all other tests to avoid disappointment. Our pharmacist will also be able to advise you in advance if you need to fast before a test.
Our Carepoint suite of health checks are for screening purposes only and are not diagnostic. Fortune’s Pharmacy operates to current national guidelines and we participate in external quality assurance schemes where these are available. Again, our pharmacist will be delighted to explain any aspect of your screening test to you.
