April 2012 - Stroke Awareness 

 

This activity is in cooperation with the Stroke Association. As well as being an important general indicator of health, high blood pressure is also an important cause of  strokes, which are caused by a problem with blood suply to the brain. 

As usual, a number of those taking the checks were advised to consult their doctor, and the checks may well therefore have prevented a serious medical event.
