We are open, just working differently

You can still attend the surgery as we have a new reception desk at the front foyer of the building. You can do everything here you could at our old reception desk.

High blood pressure (hypertension)

High blood pressure (hypertension)

High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is usually defined as having a sustained blood pressure of 140/90mmHg or above. The line between normal and raised blood pressure is not fixed and depends on your individual circumstances. However, most doctors agree that the ideal blood pressure for a physically healthy person is around 120/80mmHg. A normal blood pressure reading is classed as less than 130/80mmHg.
