The supermarket chain is trialling services including free self-service health stations, that test customers’ BMI, height, weight, blood pressure, heart rate and body fat percentage; mini health assessments with Bupa health advisers; and evening talks by Bupa specialists.
“In a UK first, supermarket customers will get the chance to try a range of leading Bupa services,” said Sarah Melia, director of Bupa health clinics. “By making it easy to access, we’re confident this will help them make long term health and lifestyle changes.”
Waitrose nutrition & health manager Moira Howie added: “Many shoppers have the best intentions to be healthier but busy lives get in the way. We know that helpful advice can get people started and have a positive effect on their long-term health.”
