The first steering group meeting for the 'Beating the pressure at work' BHF funded project took place on Thursday 29th November. The new round of funding will help to establish blood pressure checks in workplaces across the region. The key messages from the meeting are as follows:
1. The first steering group meeting was well attended with wide representation from local areas and pharmacy. Each area in attendance shared their plans for rollout and delivery of blood pressure checks within their area.
2. Plans for training Blood Pressure Champions were discussed and local areas are beginning to work with businesses to identify those who will be trained.
3. Accredited training will continue to be delivered by Halton Council and this will commence in 2019.
