High blood pressure is a contributing factor in around half of strokes in the UK.

It is often symptomless, so there is no way of knowing if you have high blood pressure unless you have it checked. Having your blood pressure tested is quick, easy and painless.

You can also ask for a free blood pressure check at most local pharmacies as well as doctor’s surgeries and some local supermarkets.
