MP for Richmond Park and North Kingston

Hugh Bayley

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.”

Ann Keen

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".


Gregory Barker

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."
