This is a reminder to stretch your neck, have a drink of water - and book in for a Health Check at Pharmacy 777.

Eligible HBF members* can claim a fully covered Health Check at Pharmacy 777, giving you access to on-the-spot results detailing your blood pressure, BMI, and risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease over the next 5 years.

What's involved in a Health Check?

Your Health Check is performed by a Pharmacy 777 Pharmacist in a private room and takes around 20 minutes. The 'checks' involved in a Health Check include:

  • Helping you understand your body measurements including Body Mass Index (BMI) and waist circumference
  • Checking your blood pressure
  • Looking at your lifestyle factors- like diet and physical activity
  • Presenting you with a report of results and recommendations
  • Identifying any early warning signs for chronic diseases like Diabetes and cardiovascular disease

What are the benefits of having a Health Check?

There are so many benefits involved in having a Health Check - especially when it's fully covered* for eligible HBF members.

  • Understanding your measurements like BMI and waist circumference can help you understand where there might be areas for improvement with your health, and offer you a chance to speak to a health professional about potential lifestyle changes.
  • Maintaining a healthy blood pressure helps reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney damage, and other conditions so checking that out regularly is important to your health.

Basically, knowledge is power.
