Free Blood Pressure Sessions

Free Blood Pressure Sessions

Telford & Wrekin Council Health & Wellbeing have introduced a new project, offering residents and those working in Telford & Wrekin a free Blood Pressure check.

They are offering residents, 40 years and over, a free blood pressure check. If residents are under 40 years of age, they can still have their blood pressure (BP) checked, but they will not record the details.

In addition to offering residents a free BP check, advice on lowering their BP will be also be available, if needed. If the BP is high, then they will also offer the loan of a BP monitor for a week and a follow up appointment to discuss the outcome of the 7-day BP monitoring and the weekly average reading.

The remaining sessions that are currently available are:

Thursday, 24th August. Interfaith, Wellington. 0900 until 1200.

Friday, 25th August. Hub on the Hill, Sutton Hill. 1000 until 1300.

Tuesday, 29th August. Jubilee House, Madeley. 0900 until 1300.

Thursday, 31st August. Interfaith, Wellington. 0900 until 1200.
