Free health check-ups in Ashton

Tameside Council is offering residents another opportunity to have your blood pressure checked.

One in three adults in Tameside has high blood pressure – sometimes called “the silent killer” - as it rarely has noticeable symptoms, but is a major cause of heart attacks and strokes.

It’s also a major factor in chronic kidney disease, heart failure and dementia.

The council has organised another opportunity for people to have a free blood pressure check and find out more information face-to-face from their NHS partners Be Well Tameside, about how you can minimise the risks.

You can go along on Tuesday, October 1, from 11am to 3pm at the Joint Public Service Centre, Tameside One, Level 1, in Ashton. 

But remember you can also ask at your GP surgery, some pharmacies, or buy your own monitor.

All adults over the age of 40 are advised to have their blood pressure checked at least every five years.
