We’re ready for winter, are you?

RTC Medical Solutions Ltd is committed to providing excellent care and support.  We also like to help out NHS where possible, so we are now preparing our 4×4 fleet for all eventualities… just in case.  We will be I=on hand across the winter period to offer 4×4 support where necessary.  If you are aware of anyone requiring this service, let them know we are here to help.

 

Free Support to the NHS throughout ‘Beast from the east’

With our commitment to patient care we have put 2 of our 4×4 response vehicles on standby to assist with NHS transport and travel pressures.  We have offered this service to ensure both patients and staff are able to get to and from hospitals.  Fingers crossed the cold spell won’t last much longer. Stay warm out there…!

Happy New Year

Chester 7s

Chester 7’s

Following a hugely successful few years providing Chester 7’s Event Medical Cover, it is now bigger, better and even more fun than ever.

This year the event will host over 3000 players of Rugby, Netball and Hockey and not forgetting the party people! Tom King and his team who organise this amazing event promise great bands and club DJ’s with top food and drinks outlets over the weekend.

So, if you’re looking for something other than the world cup for your sporting fix, Chester 7’s has it all. Bring the family and have a great day out. We are providing top level medical cover (as always) and our treatment centre will be on site from Friday evening right through until Sunday.

High Blood Pressure – The Silent Killer

High Blood Pressure – The Silent Killer

Event Medical Services High BP

Do you know why high blood pressure is known as “The Silent Killer”?

High blood pressure is said to effect approximately 25% of the population of England and is one of the biggest causes of premature death and disability.  The scariest fact is that you would most probably experience no symptoms at all, so having your blood pressure tested regularly can help spot the silent symptoms early.  Having high blood pressure in your family history doesn’t necessarily mean you cannot stop developing high blood pressure.  Although you are more at risk, maintaining healthy eating and exercising regularly will reduce your risk!

So you have high blood pressure… this doesn’t mean you are now committed to a lifetime of medications.  Simple changes to your lifestyle can help significantly lower your blood pressure without the need for medication.  But, be careful… cutting down on extra salt alone will not work alone as 75% of the salt we consume is hidden in processed foods.

Obesity, “is just being a bit overweight right?” Wrong!
Obesity affects 25% of the population in England.  Males are three times more likely to develop high blood pressure and unfortunately ladies, you are four times more likely!

“I had my blood pressure checked 10 years ago and it was OK then”.
Blood pressure testing should be checked at a minimum every 5 years.  However, people at risk – such as African or Caribbean decedents, older people or people who are overweight or obese – should be checked more frequently.  Blood pressures can be checked free of charge at some pharmacies, GP surgeries and some Private Ambulance providers offer this service.  You can also buy relatively inexpensive machines to use at home.

So stay smart, stay healthy and get your blood pressure checked regularly.
