Community Pressure Point
The primary aim of the project is to detect individuals in the community who may be unaware, that they have high blood pressure. Community Facilitators will carry out BP checks in their own community and raise awareness of Hypertension.
The project which is funded by the British heart foundation will be coordinated between 5 healthy living centres in the western trust, with the aim of promoting regular blood pressure checks and early detection. As the symptoms of high blood pressure can go quite unnoticed we hope to bring a greater awareness to the risks of hypertension and promote healthier, happier lifestyles in our communities.
