The Friends of Prostate Sufferers (FOPS) in Chorleywood have managed to get PSA (Prostrate-Specific Antigen) testing machines installed at our two local pharmacies in Chorleywood.

The machines have been funded by the Graham Fulford Prostate Cancer Charity and cost over £1000 each, and will be operated by Hitesh and Rajula Dodhia at the Parade Pharmacy (Tel 01923 283449) and by Pradip Pandya at the RO Pharmacy (Tel: 01923 282142). The test works on taking a pinprick of blood, and takes about 20 minutes.

Male residents who are 45 or older should ring to make an appointment with one of the pharmacies. FOPS have suggested a donation of £15 for the test which will go to the Graham Fulford Charity to help defray the costs of the testing machine.

Additionally FOPS will be holding a Prostate Roadshow on Monday 29th October, from 6.30pm at the Memorial Hall, which will be attended by Consultant Urologists Alvan Pope and Julian Shah who can answer any questions you might have about Prostate and PSA testing. You can ring 01923 282105 to book a place for the roadshow event.
