About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske)

On Holiday in Cornwall, I passed out, went to Emergency Dept and was thoroughly examined by a Doctor, several test incl blood pressure, blood, ECG and discussed my medication.... 2 x blood pressure tabs in morning, followed by others evening and night

I was told that I was taking too many blood pressure tablets and they told me not to take one tablet, check with my own GP when I return home....

I felt much better, only taking one B/P in mornings 3 tabs at teatime, 1 at night

Thanks for everything, my own GP said to remain without the tablet as my blood pressure was OK
