Know your blood pressure
I had my blood pressure tested last week at the “Know Your Blood Pressure” event in the Highcross Shopping Centre. It is estimated that 40% of strokes could be prevented if more people took steps to control their blood pressure. Having your blood pressure taken is a quick and painless measure, and it’s one that could save your life.
I’d strongly urge everyone to see if they can have their blood pressure checked at their local pharmacy, or make an appointment with their local nurse or GP to get tested.
