Rotary Club of Buxton Free Blood Pressure Checks

Rotary Club of Buxton in collaboration with the Stroke Association is offering free BP checks by health professionals to members of the public.  

High blood pressure (BP) is the biggest risk factor for stroke. Visit The Devonshire Dome on Friday 22 April 2016 between 10 am and 1 pm or The Springs Shopping Centre on Saturday 23 April 2016 between 9 am and noon for your free blood pressure check; it only takes a few minutes.

It could save your life as about 152,000 strokes occur in the UK each year – that’s one every three to four minutes! At last year’s BP measurements in Buxton, of 197 people screened, four were advised to seek urgent help and 63 advised to contact their own doctor routinely because of higher than normal readings.
