Kapiti Rotarians participated in the Big Blood Pressure Check on Saturday, 6 October, where they were involved in checking the Blood Pressures of 136 people. 18 of these were referred to their GPs for follow up as their readings were in the higher than normal range.

We received very positive feedback from the volunteers and participants (and non-participants too – many of whom had only recently been for BP checks).
Thanks to Kapiti New World for advertising the event and providing the testing site in their cafe, WFA paramedic Roberta, trainee paramedic Daniel, 2 trainee nurses and nurse Dianne Boyce for taking the Blood Pressures and to the Kapiti Rotarians for their enthusiastic rounding up of participants.
