On Saturday 7 October East Tamaki Healthcare supported the 2017 Big Blood Pressure Check. Every year the Stroke Foundation NZ gives thousands of people the chance to get their blood pressure checked for free at about 200 testing stations around NZ. This year the aim is to test 200,000 NZers.

This year Community Liaisons Prateek Thakkar and Meenakshi Kajal put their hands up to give free blood pressure tests outside the New World Papatoetoe.
