Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of your arteries as the heart pumps blood around your body. Blood pressure readings can give an indication of how hard your heart is working and are an important part of a general health assessment.

Normal blood pressure range by age and gender

A normal blood pressure varies from person to person. Your doctor will advise you on what is healthy for you, based on your medical history. Around 120/80 mm Hg is often considered a typical blood pressure reading.

If you have concerns about your blood pressure, speak to your doctor.
