High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is the largest treatable risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) which can lead to a fatal heart attack, stroke, kidney disease or vascular dementia. CVD causes 1 in 4 deaths in England.

As high blood pressure (hypertension) usually has no symptoms, it is estimated that 4.2 million people in England have undiagnosed high blood pressure. The only way to know if you have high blood pressure is to get an NHS blood pressure check, which is a simple, non-invasive procedure.

You can get your blood pressure checked at the practice or visit your local Pharmacy
