We’re delighted to have been shortlisted for a Better Society Award for our 2017 - 2018 partnership with Well Pharmacy, in recognition of the impact that the partnership has had over a 2-year period – including taking almost 150,000 blood pressure checks and raising over £200,000 for our stroke prevention work.
Sophie Baldock, Engagement Manager at Well Pharmacy said: “I am so proud of what our partnership with the Stroke Association has achieved and how dedicated our colleagues have been to make this a success. Over 15,000 people were referred to their GP following a blood pressure check at one of our pharmacies, and that could have saved their life. I would like to thank all our colleagues who made a real difference in the prevention of stroke in their communities.”
