Know Your Numbers Week!® at the UCKG

High blood pressure – sometimes called the ‘silent killer’ can often be prevented.

The UCKG is supporting Know Your Numbers Week!® The Blood Pressure Association’s annual blood pressure testing and awareness week. Church members and local residents are welcome to drop in between 9 – 15 September at the times and locations listed below for a simple blood pressure check.

They will also be able to learn how to take care of their blood pressure to prevent it from rising to unhealthy levels. The blood pressure checks will be carried out by volunteer nurses.

According to the Blood Pressure Association, ‘simple’ means such things as: reducing salt consumption, eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, taking regular moderate exercise and drinking very little or no alcohol can all help in keeping blood pressure under control. The association also recommends regular blood pressure checks and seeking advice from a GP when necessary.
