About Know your Numbers!

Know your Numbers! is Blood Pressure UK's flagship awareness campaign. 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.

The highlight is Know your Numbers! Week, the nation's largest annual blood pressure testing and awareness event. This takes place in the second week of September each year and provides free checks for thousands of adults across the UK.

Since its launch in 2001, Know your Numbers! Week has ensured more than 1.5million people have had their blood pressure checked so that they know their blood pressure numbers in the same way as their height and weight.

It's success was recognised at The Charity Awards 2008 when Know your Numbers! Week won the healthcare category.

Know your Numbers! Week involves hundreds of nationwide organisations signing up to provide free blood pressure tests and information at venues known as Pressure Stations.

Pressure Stations are located throughout the community including pharmacies, workplaces, GP surgeries, hospitals, health clubs, leisure centres, shopping centres and supermarkets.

Blood Pressure UK is very proud of Know your Numbers! Week and welcomes participation from a wide range of organisations to support the campaign. Please note that Know your Numbers!® is a registered trademark and all activities must be done in partnership with Blood Pressure UK.

Know your Numbers! Week 2019 will take place 9-15 September. Get your blood pressure checked.
