Hypertension result leaves GP stunned
Dr Tom Coffey was stunned when 120 patients turned out for a session to raise awareness of hypertension among the African-Caribbean community.
Dr Coffey, a GP in Tooting, south London, said only one in 20 of the crowd had a normal blood pressure reading.
'The message to know your blood pressure and reduce your salt intake was clearly passed on,' he said. 'But we clearly have a lot of work still to do.'
The meeting was organised by the Tooting Healthy Living Initiative.
