Esther Rantzen supports Know your Numbers! Week

Esther Rantzen

Esther Rantzen said:

“I am supporting Blood Pressure UK because it is shocking to realise that one in three adults has high blood pressure, yet 5 million of them don’t even know it. I hope that as many people as possible have a free blood pressure check to reduce their risk.”

Chris Packham said:

"High blood pressure is a major but preventable cause of both heart disease and stroke, and therefore I am pleased to show my support and let as many people as possible know that that they too can know their blood pressure numbers and lower their risk”


Amanda Redman

Amanda Redman said:

"High blood pressure is a silent killer and one of the biggest causes of death in the UK. Blood Pressure UK is doing a great job in raising awareness for such an important cause, and we must all now act and have our blood pressure taken". 


Alun Armstrong

Alun Armstrong said:

"The fact that 16 million people in the UK suffer from high blood pressure yet only a third of that are aware of it, highlights the importance of Know Your Numbers! Week by Blood Pressure UK. I am pleased to be a part of such a crucial campaign that encourages adults to know their blood pressure numbers and take the necessary action to reach and maintain a healthy blood pressure".
