Know your Pressure

Keeping an eye on your blood pressure is one way that you can manage your health.

For some people, it is very important to monitor your blood pressure.

Checking your blood pressure regularly may mean health problems can be detected early.

If necessary you can get support from healthcare professionals to make lifestyle changes, and, if needed, bring high blood pressure under control through medication.
