  • Attracts customers, publicity and highlights existing services
  • Customers picked up with high readings are more likely to return for prescriptions and BP management
  • Is an opportunity to conduct Medicine Use Reviews
  • New customers directed to your pharmacy through our 'find your nearest' Pressure Station website search 
  • Great way to refer customers to local health services like weight management and smoking cessation.
  • Tie-in with blood pressure monitors sales promotions
  • Opportunity to improve staff knowledge of blood pressure
  • Helps put your pharmacy at the heart of the community

Adding Value

Day Lewis staff really took Know your Numbers! Week to heart in 2008- and saw a 1,300% increase in the number of blood pressure checks taken across the group's branches.

Displaying specially designed 6ft window posters promoting the free checks was just one of the ways Day Lewis ensured maximum benefit from their participation in the event.

Providing additional training, keeping staff informed with regular bulletins and offering prizes to branches which conducted the most blood pressure checks were also key to their success.

"We saw a 1,300 per cent increase in the number of blood pressure checks taken across branches. There were numerous tales of gratitude from patients referred to their GPS because of high BPs picked up during the event"
