Join us for Know Your Numbers! Week 2024

Know Your Numbers! Week 2024 will take place from 2-8 September. We’re keeping the focus on home monitoring as it’s the easiest way to find out your blood pressure numbers.



We’re keeping the focus on home monitoring as it’s the easiest way to find out your blood pressure numbers, especially given the current pressures on the healthcare system.

Our theme for 2024 is: You have the Power.

With the everyday pressures of life, we know that understanding why it’s important to know your blood pressure numbers and taking the time to get them measured isn’t always a priority. However, did you know that getting a blood pressure check is the first step to preventing heart attacks and strokes? High blood pressure is a major cause of these diseases but usually has no symptoms until it’s too late, which is why it’s known as ‘the silent killer’. Knowing your numbers means you can start making healthy lifestyle changes or start taking medicines if you need them to bring your blood pressure down to a healthy level. So, the power is in your hands to check your blood pressure to see if it’s under control.

Your blood pressure is very important no matter your age. You can take steps to know your numbers and lower them if it’s high no matter how old you are. So why not power up and make a start today?

You have the power to successfully manage your blood pressure - but you have to know your numbers first. Get checked to beat ‘the silent killer’.


Hemini Bharadia, Blood Pressure UK Marketing Manager said“The power is in your hands to check your blood pressure”.

“High blood pressure is not simply a part of growing old. Checking your blood pressure is a great way to prioritise your health and get one up on the ‘silent killer’. And, even better - encourage your friends, family, neighbours, and colleagues to measure their blood pressure, too.”
