Around a third of people in the UK have high blood pressure, but most don’t know it. It doesn’t have any symptoms so the only way to find out is to have a blood pressure check.

High blood pressure can lead to serious health conditions including strokes and heart attacks.

During Know Your Numbers Week people are encouraged to get their blood pressure checked.

Our Live Life Better Derbyshire team will be out in Derbyshire offering free health MOTs including blood pressure checks.
