British Heart Foundation (BHF) Hypertension Project

Community Blood Pressure Testing in Hertfordshire

New funding from the British Heart Foundation (BHF) awarded to health and care organisations across Hertfordshire and west Essex will pave the way for a ground-breaking community based approach to detect high blood pressure. Full information is available via the Hertfordshire and West Essex STP website.

The grant, worth £88,000, will be used to provide blood pressure testing and outreach events at supermarkets, workplaces, football grounds and community events and will target the most disadvantaged regions in Harlow, Lower Lea Valley, Stevenage and Watford. The LPC has been a partner within the development of this successful award and community pharmacies in the regions identified will be sent full information and asked to participate in January 2019.
