Ninety one people had their blood pressure levels checked by a team of medics in Ossett Town centre on Saturday 26th April, resulting in 26 of them being referred to their own GPs for further checks, one of them urgently.

The blood pressure checks were part of a national campaign organised by the Stroke Association and supported by Rotary Clubs throughout the UK.

Peter Constantine of the Horbury and Ossett Phoenix Rotary Club organised the Ossett precinct event with the help of two retired GPs, a Dentist and a practise nurse who carried out the testing. They were supported by other Rotary Club members who distributed leaflets highlighting the dangers of high blood pressure and the need to be aware of any abnormalities.
