A Friendlies Health Check

Eligible HBF health members can book a fully covered*, comprehensive health check at participating Friendlies Pharmacies.

Feeling healthier starts with a health check

  • 20 minutes & private

    Your health check is performed by a pharmacist in a private room. Your pharmacist can offer advice or if necessary, refer you to a doctor.

  • Understand BMI

    Body Mass Index or BMI is a more reliable health indicator than weight alone. Knowing your BMI can help you set goals and take practical steps through a healthy lifestyle.

  • Comprehensive report

    You’ll get a comprehensive report and recommendations that align with your health goals to take with you on the spot.

  • Know your cholesterol

    High cholesterol levels can be reversed once you know where you stand. You can help reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke.

  • Measure your blood glucose

    High levels of glucose in the blood can lead to diabetes, nerve damage and heart disease. Luckily it’s often possible to reverse the risk if you identify it and make some lifestyle changes.

  • Check blood pressure

    Maintaining a healthy blood pressure can help you reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney damage, memory loss and loss of sight.
