Awareness week. 4th – 10th September

When did you last check your blood pressure? Know Your Numbers week is a national campaign to raise awareness about the importance of checking your blood pressure, especially for those who are over the age of 40. Around one third of adults in the UK have high blood pressure which rarely has noticeable symptoms but if untreated, it increases your risk of heart attack and stroke.

Know your numbers campaign is designed to raise awareness and encourage people to make healthier lifestyle choices. It helps people understand the link between high blood pressure and stroke. It raises awareness of other risk factors too, like atrial fibrillation (a type of irregular heartbeat), and smoking.

By understanding your numbers empowers you to make informed decisions about diet, exercise, and overall health. Let’s make wellness a priority! To watch and hear more from
