  1. A Complete Guide to Health Check-Ups

    A Complete Guide to Health Check-Ups

    When you hit the big 4-0, it’s a good time to take stock of your physical health and schedule a health MOT. By the age of 40, even if you’ve taken great care of yourself, your body might be showing a bit of wear and tear. It might be even more noticeable if you haven’t focused on health and fitness in your younger years. You might find the scales creeping up, experience a bit of huffing whilst going up the stairs or have just noticed a few new niggles. Pearl Chemist Group offers a convenient, compassionate health check in Morden.

    Quit Smoking: Challenge Yourself

    Smoking can lead to many diseases and disabilities. It harms nearly every organ of the body and is the main cause of preventable illness and premature death in the UK. Globally, annual tobacco related deaths exceed 7 million (including 2nd hand smoke) and is set to rise to 10 million by 2030.

    What are the Side Effects of the Flu Jab?

    The annual flu vaccine is one of the most safe and effective vaccines that protects people at risk of becoming seriously ill from the flu.
