High blood pressure puts you at risk of having a stroke or heart attack.
Help us to STOP Stroke.
Know Your Numbers, STOP stroke!
Knowing Your Numbers is quick, free, painless and could save your life.
High blood pressure is the single biggest risk factor for stroke and also causes heart disease. Blood Pressure starts to rise when you are young, and the sooner you can keep it under control, the lower your risk will be as you get older. Know Your Numbers, STOP stroke.
Blood Pressure UK’s 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.
Research from Blood Pressure UK Know Your Numbers! Week 2016 revealed that 68% of UK adults didn’t know their blood pressure and 16% of people with high blood pressure had not had a blood pressure check in the previous year. This demonstrates the importance of campaigns like Know Your Numbers! in identifying people with undiagnosed high blood pressure and that carrying out blood pressure checks in diverse and more convenient locations can reach more people. Without knowing their numbers, many people are unable to take those vital steps towards a healthier life. We can provide accurate, reliable and supportive materials to help people
