Hyde’s Stroke Awareness Day, organised by the members of the Hyde Rotary in conjunction with the Stroke Association UK, will be held Saturday 6th April
The annual event will run from 11.00am to 3.00pm at the Clarendon Square, where medically trained members of the Rotary Club of Hyde will be offering free blood pressure checks to the public.
High blood pressure, which is not always recognised by the patient, is the biggest risk factor in the cause of strokes, and can be easily treated and controlled by medication.
On the day, shoppers, visitors and members of the community who volunteer to have their blood pressures checked on the day will be given their respective readings and advice to consult their general practitioner for a further check if appropriate.
The Rotary Club of Hyde want to encourage the people of Hyde to take this great opportunity to have a free check and help themselves and Rotary’s efforts in the prevention of strokes in our community.
