Does anybody know of anywhere in central Birkenhead where people can go and have their B.P measured?? Either a D.I.Y 'machine' or a pharmacy or something??

Thank you.

Thanks, Mr Hanky thumbsup

and thank you Nuddy- even better. I am vaguely familiar of the lay-out of the Whetstone Lane Surgery....the receptionists straight ahead with the mini-pharmacy to the left. Could you be more specific please, so I can walk in and look like a patient from the practise?? grin

thanks Zipper, too smile Whetstone Lane seems 'the one' though.

We do have one of the DIY machines in our Surgery in Liscard but I'm over Birkenhead way several times a week so it makes sense to check my B.P there.

You can get one of those wrist ones for less than 10 off Ebay.
Some don't work if your pressure is over 200.

For those that don't know what roughly your pressure should be check out this site. Mine on a good day ;-) could be as high as 250 over 136. Its a lot less these days.

Mine has dropped too. Had medication removed- G.P wants 'readings' over the next couple of weeks before a review appointment.
