Visit to Vantage Pharmacy at Ridgeway Road

Friday, February 22, 2002

Meg Munn MP for Sheffield Heeley visited Vantage Pharmacy at Ridgeway Road, Manor Top on Friday 22nd February (General Health Check Day) to see the free special services on offer – blood glucose checks, blood pressure monitoring, advice on stopping smoking and checks to detect carbon monoxide levels in the body as well as height, weight and body mass index measurement.

She said

“What is really good about the services on offer in the pharmacy, the free health checks and advice, is that it provides easy and open access for people who might not ordinarily go to the doctors to discuss these topics, but could really benefit from the help.

Some people don’t like to “worry their doctors” or “waste their time” about things like stopping smoking, so having someone on hand at the local shops to talk to about this, is a real benefit to them.

It is also wonderful as an early-warning system, if people are alerted to the presence of carbon monoxide in their body for instance then they know they have to have their fires and boilers checked urgently, if their blood pressure is abnormal then that too alerts them to the need to visit the local surgery. We are constantly told that prevention is better than cure, and this kind of walk-in support within the community is a great idea.”
