WARNING – NHS Health Check Appointments

February 26 2019

The LPC has been made aware that pharmacies in our area may be receiving calls or emails from a private company offering to provide patients for NHS Health Check appointments in return for payment of a fee.

Community pharmacies in Northants and MK  are not currently commissioned to provide NHS Health Checks  the private company has no association with either our CCG or our Public Health team.

We would encourage all pharmacies to review carefully any contracts they may be asked to sign in or seek legal advice before signing any such contracts particularly in relation to NHS Health Checks and be aware that this is not something that is being offered in conjunction with Public Health Northants or MK.
