When it comes to your health,
Prevention is always better than cure. Health Checks provided by Pearl Chemist Group are designed to help you be proactive about your health by detecting any risks early. With PCG, residents of Streatham, London, and Central London are only a click away from comprehensive health screening services.
We all know how important it is to eat right, stay active, and to quit unhealthy habits like smoking. However, even though many people adopt a healthier lifestyle to keep illness away, they ignore one of the most important things they can do for their well-being: health checks.
If you’re concerned about your health,
Or have noticed a few aches and pains, then one of our health check’s are perfect for assessing just what’s going on with your body.

NHS health checks
The NHS provides free health checks to some groups of people. These checks can be done at GP surgeries and at pharmacies like those at PCG. You may be eligible for a free NHS Health Check if you are between the ages of 40 and 74 and do not have any pre-existing conditions. If you are eligible, you will be sent an invitation to attend an NHS health check.
Do i need a health check?
Even if you feel fine, many conditions like high blood pressure and high cholesterol often present with no symptoms and aren’t discovered unless they are specifically tested for. Since these conditions can lead to serious complications down the line, you need to catch and treat them early.
Health checks are also useful if you want advice on how to cut back on smoking and drinking, want to eat healthier, or want general advice on how to improve your health.
It’s not always possible to have preventative screenings through traditional means, such as at your GP surgery, or to get one at a convenient time. If you want a stress-free way to stay on top of any potential health risks, you can easily book a private health check with PCG.

Frequently asked questions
A healh check is designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. Our Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.
Health Checks are part of a national scheme to help prevent the onset of these health problems.
