Blood checks at the shops

Have your say

NURSES will be making blood pressure checks this week as part of a bid to reduce the number of strokes suffered by Doncaster residents.

Rotary Clubs in Doncaster and Thorne, working with the Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust’s Stroke Outreach Team, are at the Frenchgate Centre on Friday, Saturday and Sunday hosting a Know Your Blood Pressure event.

The event will be taking place from 10am to 4pm each day, offering the public a free blood pressure monitoring service and information on related health issues

The Rotary clubs are joining scores of clubs across the UK taking to the streets as part of 2011’s Know Your Blood Pressure campaign in partnership with The Stroke Association. Stroke risk can be reduced by lifestyle changes.
