Carers UK has teamed up with Lloydspharmacy to offer carers free health checks at local pharmacies during this year's Carers Week. Find out how to claim your free voucher.
With carers twice as likely to suffer ill health than the general population, Carers UK and Lloydspharmacy are taking action to improve carers' health and delivering the free health checkups for carers in over 600 Lloydspharmacies across the UK .
The checks, available during Carers Week 2009 (8th - 14th June), include free cholesterol and heart health checks (normally worth £15) as well as diabetes, blood pressure and lifestyle checks.
To claim, carers need to take a health check voucher into participating pharmacies. Vouchers can be ordered by emailing [email protected]
- where local Carers Week groups can also order limited numbers to distribute at their events. Vouchers will also soon be downloadable from this website - check back soon for more details.
Participating Lloydspharmacy stores can be found by clicking on the Lloydspharmacy logo below (just remember to tick the 'Cholesterol and Heart Health' Check box as well as entering your postcode - to make sure you find stores participating in the offer).
