High blood pressure is a risk factor for heart disease and stroke. If it is constantly raised it needs to be treated by making lifestyle changes or taking medication.
Our blood pressure service measures the following
- Systolic pressure
- Diastolic pressure
- Resting Heart Rate
- Pulse palpation
and is performed on three separate occasions
The results give an overview of how your current lifestyle affects your health. Our wellness pharmacists are on hand to offer extra advice and also know when to refer you to your GP or practice nurse.
If you are already taking blood pressure or antihypertensive medication we are fully qualified to offer personalised advice and can support other lifestyle changes like stopping smoking and weight loss which can also assist in reducing your risk.
