Blood Pressure Testing - Southall

27/09/2008

 

Saturday the 27th September saw members of the Rotary Club of Southall holding their second Blood Pressure Testing day in Southall this year.

This was very much a record breaker for Hanwell & Northfields Blood Pressure Testing, with 263 people tested in just over 4 hours.

The statistics were: -

130 Males and 133 Females tested

Of the 263, 47 were aged under 35, 98 were aged between 35-55, and 118 were aged 55+.

A total of 87 people were referred to their GP, including 11 who were recommended to contact their GP urgently.

A really rewarding day, and maybe we have helped to save at least a few lives by making people aware of health issues.
