This year we are asking ‘Do you KNOW YOUR risks of high blood pressure NUMBERS?’
High blood pressure usually has no symptoms, which is why is it often referred to as the silent killer. The only way to know you have it is to have a check. Therefore we want to encourage ALL family members to check their blood pressure, so if detected, it can be easily treated thereby reducing your risk of a stroke or heart disease.
Know your Numbers!® Week is the UK’s biggest and most far reaching blood pressure testing event and awareness week. Each year, hundreds of “Pressure Stations” offer free blood pressure checks across the UK, enabling thousands of people to get a free blood pressure check. It encourages adults across the UK to know their blood pressure numbers and take the necessary action to reach and maintain a healthy blood pressure.
