Blood pressure awareness given a boost

VOLUNTEERS in Portsmouth are urging people to be more aware of their blood pressure, offering information, advice and even free blood pressure tests.

Registered nurses from the Redeemed Christian Church Of God have a free ‘Pressure Station’ opposite TK Maxx in the Cascades Shopping Centre this week, as part of a national campaign for people to pay more attention to health warnings.

The pressure station will be set up in the Portsmouth shopping centre until Friday, September 14, running from 9am-4pm.

Nurse Omotola Adeojo said: ‘Blood pressure is one of the most preventable and treatable conditions but remains one of the leading causes of death.
