Register your pharmacy with PHE's blood pressure campaign

Your pharmacy can be listed as a participant in Public Health England's heart health campaign

To increase awareness of heart health and reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, Public Health England (PHE) will be encouraging adults to complete the new online 'One You' Heart Age Test and get a free blood pressure reading.  The campaign starts the week commencing 4th September and will last for a month.

PHE are working with a range of partners to ensure that free blood pressure checks are available and accessible in community locations across England. If you offer free blood pressure checks and would like to be included on PHE's searchable location finder as a place where the public can go to get tested please complete this Google form by 23rd August.  The information you provide will be uploaded on their site.

The online Heart Age Test they are launching will provide a series of questions for users based on lifestyle and will calculate a figure to tell you 'how old your heart is' (in comparison to your physical age) along with tips on actions you can take to lower it.
