Hy­per­ten­sion hear­ing

The Arran Banner - - News -

Sir, Are you liv­ing with high blood pres­sure, also known as hy­per­ten­sion, or do you care for some­one who is? Are you a health pro­fes­sional work­ing in this field?

If so, the Cross-Party Group (CPG) on heart dis­ease and stroke in the Scot­tish par­lia­ment wants to hear from you.

The CPG is hold­ing an in­quiry into the pre­ven­tion, de­tec­tion, treat­ment and man­age­ment of high blood pres­sure in Scot­land.

The in­quiry will gather in­for­ma­tion from peo­ple liv­ing with high blood pres­sure, those who care for some­one with the con­di­tion, and clin­i­cians and or­gan­i­sa­tions with an in­ter­est in high blood pres­sure ser­vices.

A re­port of the find­ings will be pub­lished in Jan­uary 2019 and will make clear rec­om­men­da­tions to the Scot­tish gov­ern­ment.

If you live in Scot­land and have ever been told that you have high blood pres­sure (even if you don’t need to take med­i­ca­tion to man­age this) you can share your views through an­swer­ing the ques­tions in the sur­vey at bhf.org.uk/hbpin­quiry

You can also share your views there if you are a clin­i­cian or work for an or­gan­i­sa­tion with an in­ter­est in hy­per­ten­sion ser­vices in Scot­land.

Yours,

Kylie Stra­chan Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion Scot­land
