A BRADFORD shopping centre has offered to store 7,500 blood pressure machines ahead of a NHS roll out.

As part of a project to help people manage high blood pressure at home, NHS Bradford District and Craven Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) received 7,500 blood pressure monitoring devices from NHS England in May leading to an appeal for secure storage space.

Following the appeal, The Broadway has stepped in to provide a safe place to store and distribute the machines from at no cost to the NHS.

Ian Ward, general manager at The Broadway, said: “At the centre we’re really lucky to have a large amount of space that isn’t visible or accessible to the general public. The storage in the centre’s basement isn’t always used to its full capacity so when we heard about the space issue that the CCG were facing, we stepped in without hesitation."
