Health Screening at Boots

Free Health MOT?

The Health MOT at Boots is a FREE service, for people aged 40 or over, who live in England and do not have a previous diagnosis of high blood pressure. If you're under 40, you may be eligible if your GP has referred you to have a blood pressure check or if you have a recognised family history of hypertension (at the pharmacist's discretion).

There are thought to be around 5 million adults in the UK who have high blood pressure without being aware; so it's important to keep an eye on your health and get your blood pressure checked.

What’s involved in the Health MOT?

NHS Blood Pressure Check

A pharmacist will check your Blood pressure and depending on the result, they might give you healthy living advice, give you a blood pressure monitor to take home with you and return with later or advise you to see a GP

Optional BMI & Waist Circumference Measurement

Your pharmacist will weigh you and measure your waist circumference. Your height and weight are used to work out your BMI. Measuring your waist circumference gives an indication of your visceral fat, or the fat that coats your organs. These checks can help assess your risk of developing certain health conditions.
