Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland and the Stroke Association team up each year for a “Stroke Awareness Day”  to help people take a moment and have their blood pressure tested. This year the Rotary Club of Andover hosted  free blood pressure tests at The Guildhall, High Street, Andover on Saturday, 22nd April from 9.30 am until 3.00 pm to raise awareness of the link between high blood pressure and strokes.

119 people accepted the invitation to have their blood pressure checked . Of these 5 people were referred to their GP for follow up in one week and 19 within one month. The remaining 95 were found to have satisfactory blood pressure readings and no further action required.

Over half of all strokes can be caused by high blood pressure. As well as having a blood pressure check, those attending  also received advice on steps to keep it under control and reduce their stroke risk.
