Our Blood Pressure Service is administered by our trained pharmacy team. If you are interested in receiving this service, our trained professionals will take you to one of our GPhC approved consultation rooms, asking you to rest for 5 minutes before measuring your blood pressure in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
Why should you get your blood pressure checked?
If your blood pressure is too high, it puts extra strain on your blood vessels, your heart and other organs, such as the brain, kidneys and eyes. Persistent high blood pressure can increase your risk of a number of serious and potentially life-threatening health conditions, such as:
- heart disease
- heart attacks
- heart failure
- peripheral arterial disease
- aortic aneurysms
- kidney disease
- vascular dementia
If you have high blood pressure, reducing it even a small amount can help lower your risk of these health conditions.
The only way to find out if your blood pressure is high is to have your blood pressure checked!
This is a FREE service.
