A group of people in Seaford with early signs of high blood pressure, have completed an innovative pilot scheme to reduce their risks of developing associated health conditions.

Its organisers stated that it's part of a series of activities and programmes to try to level up healthcare and wellbeing across the region, and generally promote healthier living.

Local sports and leisure centre operator Wave Active said the programme of education and supervised physical activity is a collaboration between two GP surgeries and the company.

Involved are Old School Surgery and Seaford Medical Practice, along with Wave Active itself.

All 17 patients who took part were given individual assessments before participating in weekly sessions over 12 weeks at Downs Leisure Centre, supervised and delivered by Wave Active’s Team of Health Practitioners.

Duncan Kerr, the company's Chief Executive, said:

"The pilot was a great success with patients, who were monitored throughout, reporting positive improvements to their health and wellbeing.

"This marks the start of a more integrated approach to healthcare locally thanks to the partnership between Wave Active and Seaford Primary Care Network which is focused on delivering interventions that encourage healthier living and addressing health inequalities."
