Free Blood Pressure Checks

When was the last time you had your blood pressure checked?

Knowing if your blood pressure is normal, low, or high is critical for your health. West Wakefield PCN will be offering free blood pressure checks at our Ossett Trade Counter with no appointment necessary on Tuesday 27th February.

Why get your blood pressure checked?

  • High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is a condition which can be controlled to reduce your risk of a heart attack, stroke or other cardiovascular disease.
  • In the UK there are about five million adults (one in every nine) who have high blood pressure without even knowing it, since high blood pressure itself rarely causes symptoms.
  • The British Heart Foundation estimates that high blood pressure causes over 50% of heart attacks and strokes.

The blood pressure check will only take a few minutes. Enjoy a complimentary coffee too!
