British Heart Foundation: Live & Ticking - Blood pressure

British Heart Foundation

This event is in the past

Join us for British Heart Foundation's (BHF) monthly online series Live & Ticking. As part of May Measurement Month, we are focusing on Blood Pressure.

Around 15 million adults on the UK have high blood pressure, and as a result have an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.

BHF Director of Health Programmes, Jenny Hargrave hosts this month’s event and is joined by BHF-funded Professor Tom MacDonald, from the University of Dundee.

Professor MacDonald will be discussing his team’s work on the clinical trial answering a simple but important question: when is the best time of day to take antihypertensive medicines?

We'll also be joined by Bettina Wallace who was diagnosed in 2008 with high blood pressure after collapsing on a train. Bettina has since discovered she has a heart valve problem and early-stage heart failure. Hear about how she has made positive changes to her lifestyle and raised awareness in her local Caribbean community.

BHF Senior Cardiac Nurse, Sindy Jodar will also be on hand to answer your questions.
