Iron Screening

Did you know adequate iron is essential for the optimal functioning of red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout the body?

Low iron levels can lead to fatigue, breathlessness, decreased immunity, and anaemia.

Additional symptoms may include difficulty concentrating, hair loss, headaches, and dizziness.


Health Check Procedure

Your Pharmacist will take a small blood sample from your fingertip and apply it to the test strip. They'll discuss your results with you and give you some further lifestyle advice. The test itself should take around one minute.
