Free blood pressure checks in Fareham

Have your say

ADULTS can get free blood pressure screening as part of an awareness month.

May Measurement Month is encouraging as many people as possible to get their blood pressure checked to reduce the risks of hypertension.

In the UK, one in four adults have high blood pressure but do not know they are affected.

Superdrug has joined the campaign to offer free blood pressure screening at dispensing pharmacies including at its Fareham store.

Until May 31 people can get the check during normal opening hours.

The president of International Society of Hypertension Professor Neil Poulter said: ‘Hypertension is so dangerous because there are no symptoms. Getting checked will take a maximum of 15 minutes and could save your life.’
