Know Your Blood Pressure Event - October 2017

We again supported this Rotary/Stroke Association initiative by offering free blood pressure checks and advice in The Galleries, Washington.

Event Report - Saturday 7th October 2017

Another busy day at our 'Know Your Blood Pressure' event in The Galleries, Washington today.

87 persons had their blood pressure checked during the event. 13 were advised to arrange a routine follow-up with their own GP within a month, whilst 2 people were recommended to see their GP within a week.

This Rotary project in support of the Stroke Association was again well received and considered to be a valuable community initiative. We had some very positive feedback and response for Rotary offering these free and convenient checks, and hope to hold our next check in April 2018.

Thank you again to Dr Mathew Thomas for carrying out the actual checks, and to those members of the Club who assisted. We also appreciate the continued support and assistance from the management and staff at The Galleries in Washington.
