Why do I need a blood pressure check?

A blood pressure test checks if your blood pressure is healthy, or if it's high or low.

High blood pressure (Hypertension) can increase your risk of developing serious problems, such as heart attacks and strokes, if it's not treated.

Low blood pressure (hypotension) is not usually a problem, although it can cause dizziness and fainting in some people.


Where can I get a blood pressure check done?


You might of recieved a text message from us with a link asking for your blood pressure results. If you are unable to take your blood pressure at home, you can get them done at local pharmacys as well as some sport centres and community centres. Don't worry if you haven't recieved a text, you can still obtain a free blood pressure check from these services.
