Know Your Numbers Week

31 August 2023

It's Know Your Numbers Week from 4 to 10 September 2023.

Do you know your blood pressure numbers? One in 3 adults in the UK have high blood pressure but might not be aware.

High blood pressure doesn't have any obvious symptoms but it is a major cause of heart attack and stroke, and can also lead to a number of serious long-term health conditions, such as cardiovascular disease and kidney disease.

If you are over 40, you can get your blood pressure checked for free at most pharmacies across Derby and Derbyshire.

Our Live Life Better Derbyshire team will also be carrying out free blood pressure checks around the county during Know Your Numbers week.
