From 9-15th September 2019, We are urging local residents in Grimsby, Cleethorpes and Immingham to get their blood pressure checked for FREE as part of Know Your Numbers! Week – the UK’s biggest blood pressure testing event held at ‘Pressure Stations’ around the country.
This year’s theme: ‘Living well for longer’ – encourages people to have their blood pressure measured so they can take the necessary steps to maintain a healthy blood pressure and reduce their risk of debilitating strokes and heart attacks. With many of us living well into our 70s, 80s and 90s and with so much life to look forward to, these years need to be healthy and happy for everyone, free from disease and disability.
Staff will provide information and advice on keeping blood pressure under control and measure people’s blood pressure accurately.
Known as the silent killer as there are no symptoms, high blood pressure is THE biggest single cause of death in the UK which is WHY it’s important that people have their blood pressure checked. If it is high, a healthcare professional can advise on the necessary lifestyle changes to help manage it.
