Hypertension relates to high blood pressure.
High blood pressure often causes no symptoms, or immediate problems, but it is a major risk factor for developing a serious cardiovascular disease (conditions that affect the functioning of the heart and the circulation of blood around the body), such as a stroke or heart disease.
Patients with high blood pressure are monitored regularly by the practice nurse and or the doctor, during normal surgery hours.
Please make an appointment with the Receptionist.
