FREE health checks to monitor people’s cholesterol and blood glucose levels are available at Sainsbury’s in Falsgrave for the next three weeks.

The checks are available to everyone but an appointment needs to be booked first.

The check only takes a few minutes and features a blood test, taken by a quick prick to the finger.

A spokeswoman said: “If results raise any concerns, you will be invited to return in three weeks for another test.

“In some cases people may also be advised to see their GP.”

Free information leaflets will also be available on what to eat to help lower your cholesterol.

Appointments are available every day for the next three weeks, except between the hours of noon and 2pm. Book in store or call (01723) 500693.
