Know your Numbers! is Blood Pressure UK's award-winning flagship campaign which raises awareness of the risks of high blood pressure.

The highlight of the campaign is Know your Numbers! Week, the nation's biggest blood pressure testing event, which takes place in the second week of September each year.

The event, which won the healthcare category of The Charity Awards 2008, provides free blood pressure checks at thousands of 'Pressure Stations' run by health professionals all over the UK.

If you are a health professional who takes blood pressure as part of your professional role why not sign up to run a 'Pressure Station' and help to raise awareness of the risks of high blood pressure.

By taking part, you will be able to join a successful national campaign whilst informing your patients/clients/community about the importance of every adult knowing their most vital statistic - their blood pressure.

We provide resources including posters, information leaflets, testing guidelines, record cards and other display material, as well as promoting the event both nationally and locally. You provide staff competent in blood pressure monitoring, a validated monitor and a suitable area to offer checks and information.

If you intend to run a blood pressure testing session at another time of year (outside of Know your Numbers! Week in September), we also offer Resource Packs to help you.

To find out more about this year's event, please visit our Know your Numbers! website. Please note that this event is for professionals in the UK only.




Know your Numbers is an excellent opportunity to reach people with important health messages. I was surprising to find so many with raised readings."

The package of promotional materials from Blood Pressure UK made my life very much easier. There was maximum benefit to employees with minimal effort. I have recommended Know your Numbers! to my colleagues.
