Get your blood pressure checked

There are two information sessions being held this week in Ashton and Denton respectively.

In Tameside, one in three adults have high blood pressure, which rarely has any noticeable symptoms.

It’s England’s third highest risk factor for premature death or disability, while at least half of all strokes and heart attacks are related to high blood pressure.

As part of a wider blood pressure campaign, there are two chances to get your blood pressure checked and find out more information this week, at sessions organised by Tameside Council and Be Well Tameside.

On Tuesday (3 September), you can pop in to Ashton Library at Tameside One on Market Place between 11am and 3pm.

Then, on Sunday (8 September), there will be a pop-up station at Denton Carnival next to the steps of Denton Town Hall.

There will be further sessions at Tameside Wellbeing Corner at Ashton Market Hall from 9am to 4pm on Wednesday 11 September, and at the Joint Public Service Centre inside Tameside One on Market Place in Ashton on Tuesday 1 October from 11am to 3pm.
