Blood Pressure Monitoring
At Fairford Pharmacy we offer FREE Blood Pressure checks with no appointment required. Our staff are all fully trained to measure your blood pressure in our private consulting room. As with all of our tests, we will discuss the results with you in confidence and recommend any further action you might need to take as a result of the check.
- Maintaining healthy blood pressure is important because the higher your blood pressure is, the higher your risk of health problems in the future.
- If your blood pressure is high, it is putting extra strain on your arteries and on your heart. As a result, over time this strain can cause the arteries to become thicker and less flexible, or to become weaker.
At Fairford Pharmacy we offer a FREE simple test to measure the amount of glucose in your blood. It's completely confidential, no appointment required and takes just a few minutes.
- If you think you may have high glucose levels, we’re here to help. The test is for people aged 16 and over who may be at risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.This is where the body does not effectively respond to the insulin produced, as a result blood sugar levels become too high. It can be managed by taking medication and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Ear Care Service
We are offering a FREE ear care service where we can check the ear canal for any signs of excess wax build-up or presence of an infection. Our pharmacist will use an otoscope to inspect the canal and provide a consultation on any issues that may be present.
