Following a successful bid by Champs Public Health Collaborative and partners, The British Heart Foundation (BHF) has funded Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service (MFRS) to offer blood pressure (BP) checks, advice and signposting as part of the ‘Safe and Well’ visits carried out within the community from January 15th.  The inclusion of free Blood Pressure checks into the scheme is a result of a partnership with Champs Public Health Collaborative for a BHF grant to support a community based project aimed at preventing, detecting and managing cases of high blood pressure across Cheshire and Merseyside.
