Lloyds Pharmacy chose the Irish Heart Foundation as their Charity of the Year for 2018/2019.
As part of this partnership, Lloyds Pharmacy stores nationwide will become ‘heart health hubs’ and a number of pharmacists in each of the stores will receive heart health training, focusing on cardiovascular risk assessments, lifestyle advice, and blood pressure screening.
Commenting on the new partnership, Pat Watt, Director of Sales and Marketing at Lloyds Pharmacy, said, “Lloyds Pharmacy is proud to partner with the Irish Heart Foundation. Together, our mission will be to raise awareness of heart health and the positive and proactive steps we all need to take to safeguard it. This is profoundly important, especially in a time when 10,000 lives are lost a year because of heart issues.”
