Hypertension Clinics

High blood pressure, or hypertension, rarely has noticeable symptoms. But if untreated, it increases your risk of serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes.

Around a third of adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many will not realise it. The only way to find out if your blood pressure is high is to have your blood pressure checked. All adults over 40 are advised to have their blood pressure checked at least every 5 years.

At Lofthouse Surgery and The Manse Surgery, we also invite our patients who are hypertensive to attend the surgery for an annual review. It is important that patients attend this appointment to discuss how they are managing their long term condition and to discuss any concerns or questions they may have with a health care professional.

Getting this done is easy and could save your life. To make an appointment with a Health Care Assistant please contact the surgery.
