Congratulations Polar !!! Well done !!! Bet you’re chuffed !!

I also passed today, just waiting for my train home. First blood pressure reading was too high, through the roof the fella said, second go, got through by the skin of my teeth !!!

Couldn’t praise the staff enough who did the Leeds appointments today, superb 👍🏻

I am pleased bearing in mind I absolutely hate tests like this, don’t mind being active and fit but absolutely hate testing me 🤣
Well done for you as well, one step closer and one headache less, yes!

Jessica, shame your reading of 115 was too high, the test must be 170/100. If either reading is too high you can’t do the fitness test.
The rubbish thing is, I’m quite fit but get stressed when I have my blood pressure taken in a medical setting. Obviously it must be a common thing here !
