Do you know what your blood pressure is? Not had your blood pressure checked in the last 3-5 years?

Image result for high blood pressure heart pictures

More than 1 in 4 adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many won't realise it.

High blood pressure, or hypertension, rarely has noticeable symptoms. But if untreated, it increases your risk of serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes. The only way to find out if your blood pressure is high is to have your blood pressure checked.

Our registered patients can phone reception on 01202 880786 to make an appointment to get their blood pressure checked.

Looking after your child's mind............

The pressures of everyday life can often feel overwhelming for all of us, including children. There are a range of services for young people to support them with their mental health and emotional wellbeing, including online support service, Kooth, and school nursing text messaging service, ChatHealth. There are a number of ways you can support your child’s mental wellbeing, and you probably already do that by simply talking and listening to them whilst you’re eating dinner, watching TV or on the school run. Your conversations don’t need to focus on mental health but by finding out how they are or what’s worrying them, you can look out for signs that they might need further support. Find more information and support at Every Mind Matters or Britain Get Talking
