As part of the pharmacy undergraduate curriculum, Year 3 pharmacy students will be running health screening clinics at convenient locations across campus. These clinics are free and open to all staff and students.
The health screening check will involve measuring your blood pressure, height and weight. These measurements are then used to find out your heart age using an NHS evidence-based tool and your diabetes risk using the Diabetes UK ‘ Know Your Risk’ tool. The students will then go through these outcomes with you – this is a great way to find out a little more about your own health as well as supporting our students develop their skills as future pharmacists. This type of activity really helps our students understand what they are being taught and provides both you and our students and opportunity to learn a little from other!
The health screening clinics will run 13.30-15.30 on the dates specified below. There is no need to book – please just pop over to one of these locations across campus:
Wednesday 8th November 2023 – Wellbeing room G.65 Simon Building

Evaluation of Student-led Health Screening Clinics – opportunity to participate in research study
We would like to evaluate the user experience of these student-led health screening clinics. This study will be undertaken by Harsha Parmar, Sarah Knighton and their research team.
The study is entitled ‘Student-Led Health Screening Evaluation’ and aims to explore your views after attending the student-led health screening clinic. The findings of this study will help us to develop our pharmacy teaching and learning strategy for the future pharmacy workforce.
