Know Your Numbers Week

KNOW YOUR NUMBERS WEEK
18th – 24th September 2017

Know Your Numbers! Week is the UK’s biggest blood pressure testing and awareness event.

High blood pressure has no symptoms – that’s why it’s called the silent killer, so the only way to know if you are at risk from a stroke or heart disease is to have a blood pressure check.

This year’s theme is STOP Stroke. High blood pressure is responsible for approximately 60% of strokes and the number of strokes among younger adults is increasing. As 9 out of 10 strokes are preventable we’re urging people to check their blood pressure as part of Know Your Numbers! Week – regardless of age. Together we can help to prevent death and disability from stroke and heart disease caused by high blood pressure.

Help us to STOP stroke and heart disease by finding out your blood pressure numbers at Crownway Community Centre Pressure Station near you during Know Your Numbers! Week.

Drop in to Crownway Community Centre
Mon – Fri 12pm-4pm for a free blood pressure check and more information.
