NHS pharmacies in England to offer over-40s heart check-ups

Blood pressure health checks will be available from October at all NHS high street pharmacies in England

High street pharmacies are to start offering heart health check-ups in a move that could save thousands of lives every year.

From October, every NHS pharmacy in England will be able to provide blood pressure checks to people aged 40 and over.

According to NHS estimates, 3,700 strokes and 2,500 heart attacks could be prevented as a result of the tests and about 2,000 lives could be saved over the next five years.
