Blood Pressure monitoring

Know Your Numbers! Week is being celebrated 4-10 September 2023.

Partnership Southwark is joining Blood Pressure UK in reminding people in Southwark that home monitoring is the easiest way to find out their blood pressure numbers.

To help people in Southwark, there are community pharmacies and GP surgeries across the borough offering free blood pressure check. Patients can view the locations in Google Maps.

There are also health kiosks across the borough which can measure your blood pressure, alongside the other measures included in the Vital 5. These are five measures which can give you signs about your current and future health. The kiosks are free to use and can help people track their progress too. The locations are in Google Maps.
