Know Your Numbers Week!

Know Your Numbers Week!

(9-15th September 2019)

It is so important to know your blood pressure to live a long and healthy life. High blood pressure can lead to heart attack, stroke and other illnesses which can have a detrimental effect on long term health and wellbeing.

There are many things you can do to delay or prevent disease; stopping smoking, being active, being careful about what you eat and how much alcohol you drink. But one of the simplest things you can do is know your blood pressure numbers. If you do have high blood pressure, once you know your numbers you can get support to bring it under control and prevent these diseases.

We encourage you to take the first step towards a healthy lifestyle by having your blood pressure checked during Know Your Numbers! week. Please see below the sites in Croydon which are offering FREE blood pressure testing during the week.

Don’t forget, if you’re aged between 40-74, you are entitled to a free NHS Health Check once every 5 years, unless you are under the care of a medical professional with an existing diagnosis of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease or high blood pressure. The NHS Health Check usually takes between 30-45 minutes and includes; BMI check, blood pressure check, cholesterol test and a few simple questions about your lifestyle and family medical history.
