Know Your Blood Pressure Pop-up Clinic
Sat 18th April 2015
Newbury Rotary organised a Know Your Blood Pressure pop-up clinic on Saturday 18th April 2014 for Stroke Awareness Day - Newbury Town Hall: 9:30am - 1:30pm.
Know Your Blood Pressure events are held by Rotary Clubs across the UK in collaboration with the Stroke Association.
No appointments or GP visits were needed. Over 50 people, including the Mayor of Newbury, Cllr Jo Day, just dropped-in to our Pop-Up Clinic in Newbury Town Hall on Saturday morning 18th April, 2015 to have their Blood Pressure measured.
2 individuals were identified as showing blood pressures of significant concern to merit a recommendation of seeing their GP’s within a week. A further 19 (35% - 2% up on last year) were recommended to seek a follow up test within a month.
Rotary was supported on taking the blood pressures by a Stroke Association staff member, Garry Jopling and a local volunteer nurse, Paula Fox.
