SHOPPERS can discover in minutes if they have diabetes or high cholesterol, thanks to a new health initiative.

Sainsbury’s Pharmacy in Dunchuch Road is running three health tests in the store for customers. The test is quick and easy and shoppers will find out the results in two minutes. So far more than 200 people have already been tested in Rugby after the initiative was launched at Ken Marriott Leisure Centre.

Dispenser Elizabeth Oakey said: “It’s going really well so far.”

The tests will be on offer until February 14. To book a test call the Sainsbury’s Pharmacy on (01788) 203119.
