Health Check

At Walsh’s Pharmacy we believe the earlier a illness is recognised the better the outcome for the patient, as the risks & complications associated with most conditions are then reduced.

Our expert team of dedicated healthcare professionals will be more than happy to provide customers with a health checkup on request. This involves the measurement of a person’s blood pressure and the assessment of their Body-Mass Index (BMI).

The BMI is one of the most accurate ways to determine whether or not an adult is overweight. BMI uses a person’s weight and height to gauge body fat. It can be calculated by dividing a person’s weight (in kilograms) by his or her height (in meters, squared).  High Blood Pressure can put a strain on the arteries, the heart and other organs and cause heart attacks and strokes.  High Blood Pressure can be a ‘silent disease’ creating irreparable damage if not caught in time.
