LloydsPharmacy is inviting customers to get fit and stay well for the summer as it launches its Change Your Health Direction programme.

This is a national LloydsPharmacy initiative offering a free eight-week health and wellness programme personalised for each customer.

Interested parties can simply drop into any of the five LloydsPharmacy stores in Co Wicklow to sign up and, when they do, they will receive a blood pressure and BMI screening and can discuss their goals with a trained LloydsPharmacy epresentative.

As part of the programme, participants will receive nutritional advice, a diary for food logging with health and wellbeing tips and a smoking cessation plan (where applicable).

For the remainder of the programme, they'll visit their local LloydsPharmacy for a weekly weigh-in where their coach will support and track their progress and offer tips and healthy lifestyle guidance.

Marta Alves, Change Your Health Direction coach at LloydsPharmacy on Main Street in Wicklow town said that the plan shows that you don't need to spend huge amounts of money to make a positive change and gives customers the 'support to take more control over their health and wellness'

'We want to demonstrate that a pharmacy is more than just a place you go to pick up a prescription,' she said.

LloydsPharmacies are located at Main Street in Baltinglass, Main Street in Wicklow, the Tesco Shopping Centre in Greystones and both Novara Avenue and Castle Street Shopping Centre in Bray.
