Boots offers free health MOTs to over 40s
Boots is offering free health MOTs to people aged over 40 from now until the end of June.
With appointments available to book at over 1,000 Boots stores in England, the MOTs consist of a 15-minute consultation with a Boots pharmacist.
Patients will receive an NHS blood pressure check, with a GP referral if needed, and an optional BMI and waist circumference measurement. They will also be given lifestyle guidance on exercise, nutrition, sleep, mental wellbeing and stopping smoking, as well as personalised advice and recommendations.
At the end of their appointment, patients will be given a booklet which contains information on leading a healthy lifestyle and a section with the results of their MOT.
Claire Nevinson, superintendent pharmacist at Boots, said: “The Free Health MOT at Boots is intended to help people gain greater insight into their health and take the steps they need to improve it. As we get older, we become more vulnerable to conditions like high blood pressure, so it’s important that we take steps to help stay healthy.
“The checks done during the MOT and the advice provided not only helps individual patients lead healthier lives but also reduces pressure on the NHS by offering accessible care in pharmacies at the heart of communities.”
