Know Your Blood Pressure
Sat 29th October 2016 at 10.00 am - 4.00 pm
To support the work of the Stroke Association, we were again at The Galleries, Washington, to offer free blood pressure checks and advice.
77 persons had their blood pressure checked during the event. 23 were advised to arrange a routine follow-up with their own GP within a month, whilst 9 people were recommended to see their GP within a week.
This was again a very worthwhile initiative with a number of people giving us some very positive feedback and response for Rotary offering these free and convenient checks, and for supporting the Stroke Association in raising awareness of the condition and offering advice.
Thank you to Dr Mathew Thomas for carrying out the actual checks, and to those members of the Club who assisted. We also appreciate the support and assistance from the management and staff at The Galleries in Washington.
