The Croí Third Age Mayo project and Midwest radio’s GAA commentators Michael D McAndrew and Martin Carney are joining forces to highlight the fact that free blood pressure checks are available in numerous pharmacies across Mayo to people over 55 years of age who have not had their blood pressure checked in the past year.

Croí is partnering with a number of pharmacies across Mayo throughout September offering free blood pressure checks as part of the Croí Third Age Mayo project. This initiative is specifically designed to promote and support the cardiovascular health and well-being of the over 55 population in county Mayo.

Members of the public found to have high blood pressure will be offered advice and information, as well as the opportunity to take part in a free blood pressure management programme, delivered by the Croí multi-disciplinary health team.
