Telehealth Solutions and NHS Islington: telehealth in pharmacies

Islington residents can now receive a 30 minute consultation at their local pharmacy that calculates their risk of having a heart attack, stroke or developing diabetes in the next ten years. NHS Islington is using Telehealth Solutions’ CardioPods in 10 pharmacies to measure blood pressure, BMI, cholesterol and blood sugar. The readings are then used to assess a patient’s risk of developing cardiovascular disease and sent directly to their GP. More information.
