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.
The launch of the Mobile Health Unit has been made possible thanks to the staff of Bank of Ireland, who are generously undertaking a range of employee-led fundraising initiatives to support the operation of the Mobile Health Unit.
Corporate partner Medtronic also supported this initiative by providing the initial purchase cost of the vehicle.
