The Federation has been commissioned to provide a hypertension support service to the city from the 1st April. The aim of this service is to improve access to hypertension treatment and behaviour change for cardiovascular disease prevention and healthy lifestyles for those most at risk and already on a GP register but not being actively managed. The focus is on people living in the most deprived parts of the city.

This service is being led by a Prescribing Pharmacist who specialises in Hypertension, with an Engagement Officer to support patients with health and wellbeing coaching.
