Volunteers from our Stroke Support Group joined forces with members of Eastleigh and Chandler's Ford Rotary Clubs at the Easleigh Mela for a Know Your Blood Pressure event. We tested 87 people. Of those, most required no further action. Nine were advised to have a routine follow up with their GP in a month. Three had readings high enough to recommend a visit to their GP in one week and one person's results were so high and caused so much concern that he was strongly advised to go immediately to A&E. This is just another example of how important these Know Your Blood Pressure events are to inform and prevent stroke or other related illnesses.
