HeartIrish Heart Foundation – Mobile Health Unit visit to Portlaw Library

The Irish Heart Foundation are delighted to be attending Portlaw Library with their drop in Mobile Health Unit on Tuesday 17 April between 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm. Nurses will be available to provide heart health information and do blood pressure checks. The one-to-one advice offered by the nurse is a vital part of this check. Each person receives a personal record card with their results and in the event of any abnormal results is advised to follow up with their GP.

High blood pressure which is a major cause of stroke and heart attack is one of the most prevalent risk factors in the population and one which once identified is very manageable, thereby reducing risk. A blood pressure check is a simple quick and non-invasive test that could prove life-saving.
The mobile health unit will need 10 minutes to set up on arrival and will receive the last individual for a blood pressure check 10 minutes before the allocated finish time.

For more information please contact Portlaw Library on 051 387402.
