Know Your Numbers Week 2023
Know Your Numbers Week is run by Blood Pressure UK, a charity dedicated to lowering the nation’s blood pressure to prevent stroke and heart disease. This year’s campaign will take place from 4-10 September 2023.
The aim is to reach those who have high blood pressure and don’t know it, so they can get the treatment and support they need to bring it under control.
Campaign theme: Make the time, ease your pressure.
This year the focus is on home blood pressure monitoring, as it’s the easiest way to find out your blood pressure numbers. Despite busy lifestyles it is important to make time to know your blood pressure.
