Blood pessure check in town

LINCOLNSHIRE Co-operative’s pharmacy team is urging people to get their blood pressure checked for free during this Know your Numbers! Week (September 12-18).

The Co-operative pharmacy in Eastgate is one of over 1,500 official Pressure Stations taking part in the nation’s biggest blood pressure testing event run by UK charity the Blood Pressure Association.

The society’s Head of Pharmacy Alastair Farquhar said: “Having your blood pressure checked is a simple and painless test. It’s also quick and can be done at your convenience by dropping into one of our pharmacies – just five minutes out of your day could see any potential problems identified.”
