The Irish Pharmacy Union is supporting National Blood Pressure Day 2024. Over 81 participating pharmacies in Cork will offer free blood pressure checks on Thursday, 18th January.

High blood pressure, a symptomless condition affecting two out of three individuals over 50, can be successfully managed if detected. The quick, easy, and non-invasive blood pressure checks at participating pharmacies will provide detailed results cards along with any necessary health advice or referrals.

Clare Fitzell, Head of Strategic Policy at the IPU, is encouraging people to take advantage of the service: “Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a serious health problem in Ireland, and many people are unaware that they suffer from it. Adults should take steps to inform themselves of their blood pressure levels. Those aged over 40 should have an annual check and under 40s should have a check at least every five years".

Untreated high blood pressure increases the risk of developing conditions such as heart disease, stroke, dementia, and problems with eyesight or kidneys.

Clare Fitzell further states, "Thankfully, many people who have slightly raised blood pressure can successfully manage this through straightforward lifestyle changes. The key is knowing what your level is and taking appropriate action."
