Headline

Fire crews to take blood pressure reading in NHS Health Checks rollout

Comment

it's not the health checks themselves which prevent thousands of strokes, but the followup, diagnostic workup and ongoing treatment of the hypertension and risk factors by gps ,and if there isn't the capacity for all the necessary follow up, the desired outcomes won't happen.If this rollout includes budgets for extra nursing /gp sessions to deal with the checks wd sound better!
