Join David Warburton MP, and lets try and stop the 'Silent Killer' 22nd April 2017
Rotary Club of Langport and Somerton

In a bid to conquer strokes, those living in the Langport area are invited to a free blood pressure test by the Rotary Club of Langport and Somerton and the Stroke Association, on Saturday 22nd April, in the Tesco's car park in Langport. Please come along between 10am and 2pm to test your blood pressure.

David Warburton MP will be attending at 10am to offer his support to the event. If you go along you may meet him and possibly raise his blood pressure.

High Blood Pressure remains the biggest risk factor for strokes, contributing to over half of strokes in England. High blood pressure is often referred to as the 'silent killer', because it doesn't present symptoms, and many people have no idea their health may be at risk.

'Know Your Blood Pressure' day on 22nd April is about raising awareness of the link between high blood pressure and strokes. Those living in the Langport area can get their blood pressure professionally checked, and receive information and advice on steps to keep it under control.

Rotary's long term support for the national 'Know Your Blood Pressure' campaign has reached hundreds of thousands of people in the last decade, potentially saving many lives.
These events can play a big role in reducing strokes across the country, and it is clear that high blood pressure is far more common than you would think.

Getting your blood pressure checked is quick and easy, and a 2 minute check could save your life!!
