Health checks at Southall Day Centre
The Southall Day Centre hosted the second of their regular health checks earlier this month.
Delivered in partnership with Puri Pharmacy. Fifty-one customers had blood pressure and diabetes checks.
The team introduced the initiative because customers have told them they've struggled to see their GP in person.
"We're grateful to Puri Pharmacy for supporting our customers with this personalised programme. It supports and reinforces the importance of our wellbeing projects, including regular exercise and yoga sessions." Sukh Sandher, Southall Day Centre Manager
Everyone enjoyed the sessions. Many commented on how much they appreciated the time with the pharmacist and requested a longer session. The team is now planning future health talks with Puri Pharmacy on some of the issues customers wanted to discuss.
"As a community pharmacy in the heart of Southall, we're thrilled to support the Southall Day Centre in an innovative and engaging approach to improve the health and wellbeing of their customers. We're also excited to roll out a series of health events and sessions with the centre later this year." Rahul Puri, Lead Clinical Pharmacist at Puri Pharmacy
