Scotland has extended its walk-in diagnostic, treatment and medical consultation pilot, with the launch of the services at a Boots pharmacy in Glasgow's Central Station. Eight pharmacy outlets in five cities (the others are Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Dundee and Airdrie) are now involved, operated by: Bairds Pharmacy, Alliance Pharmacy (two), the Inch Pharmacy and Boots itself (at four sites). The tests feature screening for chlamydia, diabetes and cholesterol, and lithium monitoring. "The chlamydia kits are supplied by NHS boards, as per local arrangements, and testing is provided by NHS Board laboratory services," a spokesperson told Clinica.
