Blood Pressure Campaign
Wellington Free Ambulance, in association with the Stroke Foundation and with the assistance of Johnsonville Rotary, ran a Blood Pressure Campaign, at the New Worlds in Newlands and Churton Park, to check peoples’ blood pressure and bring home to everyone the importance of checking one’s blood pressure for good health and avoiding strokes.
The campaign ran from 10 am to 2 pm on 3 October 2016. 85 people were checking in Newlands and 125 in Churton Park.
Apart from the serious side (and some do have reasons to go on for further checks), there were lots of smiles and appreciation from the community for this free service and advice.
