Who we are

 

We're the only UK charity dedicated to lowering the nation's blood pressure to prevent disability and death from stroke and CVD.

We raise awareness of high blood pressure to find the millions of people in the UK who don’t know they have it, and we provide information and support to bring it under control. Find out more about what we do.
