People can now have a blood pressure (BP) check in local pharmacies.  The service is available to anyone over the age of 40, with or without a confirmed diagnosis of high BP, and can also be offered to under 40’s if the pharmacist thinks it is needed.  GP teams are also able to refer to the community pharmacy for BP checks and ambulatory BP readings.

See the Community Pharmacy Blood pressure check service page for more details and the list of participating pharmacists in your area, which maps pharmacist participation.
