Blood Pressure UK - Know your numbers

MeDiNova supports Blood Pressure UK - Know Your Numbers Week 2018

Blood pressure UK Know Your Numbers Week, from 10 – 19 September,  is an excellent way to help people learn more about the risks of high blood pressure.  Chief Medical Officer and UK Managing Director of MeDiNova, Dr Essam Abdulhakim MBChB FRCS said;

“We are pleased to support the Know Your Numbers initiative and help highlight the dangers of high blood pressure.  By creating awareness of the campaign, we hope to encourage people to think about their blood pressure and get a free blood pressure check.”

Blood Pressure UK information:

“High blood pressure usually has no symptoms, which is why is it often referred to as the silent killer. The only way to know you have it is to have a check. Therefore in 2018 we want to encourage ALL family members to check their blood pressure, so if detected, it can be easily treated thereby reducing your risk of a stroke or heart disease.

“Know your Numbers!® Week is the UK's biggest and most far reaching blood pressure testing event and awareness week. Each year, hundreds of "Pressure Stations" offer free blood pressure checks across the UK, enabling thousands of people to get a free blood pressure check. 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.”

This year we are asking 'Do you KNOW YOUR risks of high blood pressure NUMBERS?’
