NHS blood pressure checks & hypertension finding service
Wyvern Pharmacy now offer the NHS Hypertension Finding Service. Hypertension means high blood pressure, which if not diagnosed is a major risk factor for heart attacks, stroke and kidney problems. The problem with high blood pressure is that it usually has no symptoms, so is often not discovered until it has already started causing problems.

To combat this, the NHS has asked pharmacies like Wyvern Pharmacy to offer free blood pressure checks to anyone over 40 (or younger if there is a family history of hypertension) who don’t already have issues with their heart or blood pressure. We use a high spec blood pressure monitor in pharmacy to check blood pressure & pulse rate. If readings are safe (below 140/85 mmHg) we let your GP know and can offer advice on keeping healthy in the years to come.

If a reading looks high, we’ll offer you a home monitor that you wear for 24 hours. This gives us a better look at what your blood pressure usually is. If readings are still high, we’ll let your GP know and help you get further help & advice. If you’re near Accrington and would like to take part, call in or give us a ring on 01254 875008.
