MPs from all sides of Parliament lend their support to the nation’s biggest blood pressure testing and awareness event.
MP for Bosworth
"I know what a great contribution the Blood Pressure Association makes to improving the nation's health. Know Your Numbers! draws the attention of the public to what can be done to help and I am delighted to give my support."
MP for Maidenhead
“I’m getting my blood pressure checked and supporting the Blood Pressure Association’s Know your Numbers! Week because it’s vital that people realise the importance of good blood pressure health. I hope everyone living in the Maidenhead constituency will take the opportunity to stop by for their free and convenient blood pressure check.”
MP for Streatham
“I am supporting the Blood Pressure Association’s Know your Numbers! Week because high blood pressure is a health issue that will affect many constituents in Streatham.”
MP for Richmond Park and North Kingston
“I am happy to support ‘Know Your Numbers’ week to encourage more people to go and get their blood pressure checked.
“A third of people with high blood pressure are unaware they have it, so it is really important to go and get tested. Having your blood pressure checked is very quick and painless, and I would like to urge everyone to pop along to their local health centre to get tested."
MP for Chesterfield
“I hope all constituents in Chesterfield will find a few minutes to have their blood pressure checked during this year’s Know your Numbers! Week. After all, just a simple, painless blood pressure check can help to prevent death and disability.”
MP for City of York
“The NHS has made enormous progress in the last ten years dealing with illnesses caused by high blood pressure. However, high blood pressure is a common and serious health condition. Making people more aware of their blood pressure, and treating high blood pressure early has helped to get the death rates down, but they could come down even more. There’s no doubt that many people in York have high blood pressure but don’t know it. That’s why I’m supporting the Blood Pressure Association’s Know your Numbers! Week and I hope all York residents will use this opportunity to get their free blood pressure check.”
MP for Enfield Southgate
“I’m supporting the Blood Pressure Association’s Know your Numbers! Week because undoubtedly many Enfield Southgate constituents have high blood pressure but don’t even know it. I hope everyone will use this opportunity to get their free blood pressure check and start taking control of their blood pressure health.”
MP for Brentford & Isleworth
"Some of us will have high blood pressure without being aware. Or we may be aware, but not realise the impact this might have on our health. By supporting the Know your Numbers! campaign this year, I hope we can raise awareness of the causes and consequences of high blood pressure and how these can be prevented".
MP for Bexhill and Battle
“I’m getting my blood pressure checked and supporting the Blood Pressure Association’s Know your Numbers! Week because it’s vital that people realise the importance of good blood pressure health."
