Do you know your blood pressure?
A pharmacy has joined a national campaign to promote the importance of blood pressure checks
The Roy Latchman chemist, in Leytonstone High Road, is offering free tests as part of Know Your Numbers Week, which begins on September 16.
Pharmacist, Roy Latchman, 71, said: “Ask most people what the tyre pressures for their cars should be and they may tell you straight away.
“But ask them the figures for their blood pressure and most won’t have a clue.
“That is unfortunate because blood pressure is a very accurate pointer to possibly dangerous health problems, and regular checks are essential to spot changes.”
