Free Blood Pressure Checks in Pharmacy

Published on: March 20, 2024

We’re supporting the Department of Health and Social Care and the NHS on a new campaign urging eligible adults aged 40 and over to get a free blood pressure check at their nearest pharmacy.

High blood pressure is responsible for 1 in 4 deaths in England; it can have no symptoms but it can be easily treated. An estimated 4.2 million people in England are unaware they have it and the only way to know is to get a blood pressure check.

If you’re aged 40 or over, you can get a free, simple, and non-invasive NHS blood pressure check at a local participating pharmacy, find one near you by clicking here.
