Free Blood Pressure Checking Service
We are offering free NHS blood pressure checks to people aged 40 and over.
You can't usually feel or notice high blood pressure. In fact, many people may not know they have it. This is because high blood pressure very rarely causes any obvious symptoms until a serious acute event such as a heart attack or stroke.
The check involves around 10-15 minutes in the pharmacy consultation room with our pharmacist. Following this, if needed you may be invited to take home a blood pressure monitor that measures your blood pressure as you go about your daily life.
Depending on your blood pressure reading you may be referred to your GP. The pharmacist will guide you through any necessary steps depending on your blood pressure result.
