Are you one of the 5 million undiagnosed? Take time to know your numbers
From the 10th to the 16th September it’s ‘Know Your Numbers Week’. This year it focuses on blood pressure, encouraging adults across the UK to find out their blood pressure numbers and to take the necessary action to maintain a healthy blood pressure.
Why is this important to me and my colleagues? According to Blood Pressure UK:
- In the UK high blood pressure is the third biggest risk factor for all disease after smoking and poor diet
- Around one in three adults in the UK has high blood pressure
- Half of people with high blood pressure are not diagnosed or receiving treatment. In England alone there are more than five million people that are undiagnosed
We can help you by delivering 20 minute health checks, which allow your colleagues to know their numbers on a range of biometric checks, as well as receive lifestyle advice and personal goals.
