This International Award to the Coventry and Warwickshire Hypertension and Cardiovascular Team is one of only eight awarded to centres in the United Kingdom by the European Society of Hypertension so far.
The Award highlights the high quality of research carried out and of clinical care provided to Coventry and Warwickshire patients through an effective Academic and NHS partnership, and underscores the significant potential for development.
The Centre provides not only cutting-edge international clinical research, but provides the local community, the health professionals (general practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, etc) and the health economy with the expertise and skills necessary to help prevent, diagnose, and manage all cases of hypertension and associated cardio-metabolic complications, and with the use of the best level of care available.

The West Midlands Hypertension Centre of Excellence, led by Prof Francesco Cappuccio and Dr Indranil Dasgupta, joined the global initiative May Measurement Month launched by the International Society of Hypertension. Margaret Carmody, Tammy Stevenson and Indy Dasgupta organised a screening event in the Fan Zone of the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on Saturday 8th May 2017 ahead of the Aviva Rugby match between Wasps and Saracens. The event was a great success with the screening of 85 volunteers. Many thanks to the staff who attended, the Event Organisers at the Wasps RFC and the volunteers who took part.
Below some memories of the event.
