As one of the first activities of our new partnership with Diabetes UK and The British Heart Foundation – Tesco pharmacies across the country are offering free health checks to the first 40,000 people.

Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease are conditions which affect millions of people across the UK every day and while they can be serious and life-threatening, the good news is they are also largely preventable, by making healthy choices and particularly through losing excess weight or maintaining a healthy weight.

The Health Check takes about 30 minutes and involves measuring your weight and waist measurement as well as checking your BMI (body mass index), blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose levels.

You can book a Health Check appointment at any Tesco Pharmacy before 9 March 2015. For more details and to find your nearest store visit http://tescocharitypartnership.org.uk/check-your-risk
