Cholesterol Screening Service

Our professional pharmacist can offer advice on any of our screening tests

Our cholesterol test requires a very small blood sample. For all services, we ask that you make an appointment with our pharmacist for the screening service you require. At this appointment, you will be asked a few health screening questions to make sure the test is appropriate for you an to offer you the best advice for your health. You will be given information about the test, how it works and asked to sign a consent form

The results will be available, usually within a few minutes, and professional advice will be on hand to explain the results, their meaning and if treatment or follow up is recommended.

All tests and results are entirely confidential, and no information is passed on without your explicit consent.

An estimated two out of three adults over the age of 35 have raised cholesterol levels.

Adults should check their cholesterol levels regularly, but if raised cholesterol and/or heart disease runs in the family a more frequent rate of assessment and review should be considered at a younger age.

A finger prick blood sample produces a result in just a few minutes. A sophisticated testing strip is used which gives a breakdown of your cholesterol level to give HDL, LDL and triglyceride readings.

The cost of this service is £20 for a full cholesterol test (total, HDL, LDL and triglyceride).
