If left untreated, it can cause a heart attack or stroke. Find a pharmacy for a free blood pressure check."

High blood pressure has no symptoms but if left unchecked could lead to serious illness.

Herts and West Essex ICB has launched a campaign to encourage people to get a free blood pressure check at a pharmacy.

You can visit the ICS website to get the full details of the campaign, which is particularly targeting people aged 40 and older.

Checks are free for people over 40 who have not had a blood pressure check in the past 6 months and more than 200 pharmacies across Herts and west Essex are taking part.

Information available on the website includes:

  • How to find a pharmacy where you can get your blood pressure checked
  • Tips on taking a blood pressure reading at home
  • Ways you can help reduce your blood pressure
  • Maintaining healthy blood pressure
