ARE YOU OVER 45?
HAVE YOU HAD YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE CHECKED IN THE LAST 5 YEARS?
NHS England recommends that those over 45 should have their blood pressure checked every 5 years.
High blood pressure can increase the risk of developing serious problems such as heart attacks or strokes.
We have a blood pressure machine in our waiting room which is easy to use and can be used at any time that the surgery is open. The reading taken is fed into your patient record and if it is found to be high, we will then arrange for further monitoring to be carried out.
Please call in and use the machine – our receptionists will be more than happy to help you if you are unsure of what to do.
