In the meantime, please complete the form below to advise of an expression of interest and we will be in touch.

In partnership with Ryman Healthcare, the Stroke Foundation will be travelling around Melbourne and Victoria delivering free blood pressure checks to Victorians.

Blood Pressure Van

Rayman Healthcare logo This project is made possible with the generous support of Ryman Healthcare.

The 5 minute health check includes a blood pressure check and stroke & type 2 diabetes risk assessment. Participants are emailed their personal results and relevant health recommendations.

The BP Van can visit workplaces, shopping centres, retirement villages, universities, public events etc.

There is no cost for community/not-for-profit groups booking the Victorian BP Van, courtesy of our sponsor Ryman Healthcare.

Workplaces and businesses are strongly encouraged to make a donation (suggested $300.00 for up to 3 hours plus $100.00 per hour thereafter) to support our vital stroke prevention activities. An invoice can be provided upon request.

The BP Van is 2.4m wide, 2.6m high, 6m long and 3,550kg. The van runs off battery and therefore does not require access to power. It does however require a safe and accessible space the size of two flat car parks as the van has an awning that opens up from one side and three steps that extend out the back.
