A blood pressure check is a simple quick and non-invasive test that can truly be life-saving.

High blood pressure is a major cause of stroke and heart attack it is one of the most widespread risk factors in the population. High blood pressure, so long as it is identified, is very manageable; thereby reducing your risk.
