Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)

The new ‘Get your blood pressure checked’ campaign launches 11th March 2024.

The only way to know if you have high blood pressure is to get a blood pressure test to lower your risk of a fatal heart attack, stroke, kidney disease or vascular dementia. The campaign encourages all adults aged 40 and over to get a blood pressure check. It’s a free, simple and a non-invasive procedure conducted in privacy at your local pharmacy, and you don’t need to book in advance.
