Community Blood Pressures Facilitators
During 2019 there will be two blood pressure advisors touring Telford & Wrekin taking people’s blood pressure as part of an innovative community-based project. They will aim to take 10,000 new blood pressure tests by the end of March 2020. The initiative has been funded by the British Heart Foundation.
The advisors will be out and about at a number of public events as well as visiting large employers such as the Police and the Council.
It is estimated that there are 18,000 people in the Borough who currently have undetected high blood pressure.
