Know your Numbers!
Blood Pressure Week
9-15th Sept 2019
Know Your Numbers! Blood Pressure Week is the UK’s awareness campaign. It encourages adults across the UK to know their blood pressure numbers and take the necessary action to reach and maintain a healthy blood pressure.
I’m taking part in Know your Numbers! Week, the Nation’s largest annual blood pressure testing and awareness event. This takes place from 9-15th September and I’m providing free checks in Wilmslow during this week. A poster will be displayed outside the clinic to let you know opening times for Walk-In appointments. I can offer you dietary and lifestyle information and advice.
I will also be offering free Body Composition Analysis to analyse Visceral Fat Measurement to screen those at risk for developing Heart Disease and Type 2 Diabetes.
Since its launch in 2001, Know your Numbers! Week has ensured more than 1.5million people have had their blood pressure checked so that they know their blood pressure numbers in the same way as their height and weight.
It’s success was recognised at The Charity Awards 2008 when Know your Numbers! Week won the healthcare category.
Know your Numbers! Week involves hundreds of nationwide organisations signing up to provide free blood pressure tests and information at venues known as Pressure Stations.
Pressure Stations are located throughout the community including pharmacies, workplaces, GP surgeries, hospitals, health clubs, clinics, leisure centres, shopping centres and supermarkets.
Blood Pressure UK is very proud of Know your Numbers! Week and welcomes participation from a wide range of organisations to support the campaign. Please note that Know your Numbers!® is a registered trademark and all activities are done in partnership with Blood Pressure UK.

Know Your Numbers Week 12-18th September 2016
All week I have been offering free walk- in blood pressure checks for Blood Pressure Awareness Week.
The aim of the campaign is to encourage adults to know their own blood pressure numbers and take the necessary action to reach and maintain them at a healthy level. The only way to know for sure if your blood pressuure is high is to get it checked.
High Blood Pressure is one of the most preventable and treatable conditions but remains one of the leading causes of death. The message to local people is to take charge of their health and and get their blood pressure checked free of charge. After you have had your blood pressure checked, you can make changes to reduce your risk– it’s never too late.
It has been a worthwhile service to offer local people who can just walk-in and get a free check. Becoming familiar with your Blood Pressure means you can then take steps to lower it if it’s high.
I will continue to offer a monthly Walk-In Blood Pressure Check Clinic once this week’s campaign had ended.
I will be advertising opening times on this website and Twitter @OsteoWilmslow
