Swettenham Chemists is supporting Know Your Numbers Week 2019 which takes place between 9th - 15th September 2019. All our branches are acting as Blood Pressure stations.
Know your Numbers! is Blood Pressure UK's flagship awareness campaign. 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.
The highlight is Know your Numbers! Week, the nation's largest annual blood pressure testing and awareness event. This takes place in the second week of September each year and provides free checks for thousands of adults across the UK.
Since its launch in 2001, Know your Numbers! Week has ensured more than 1.5 million people have had their blood pressure checked so that they know their blood pressure numbers in the same way as their height and weight.
It's success was recognised at The Charity Awards 2008 when Know your Numbers! Week won the healthcare category.
Know your Numbers! Week involves hundreds of nationwide organisations signing up to provide free blood pressure tests and information at venues known as Pressure Stations.
Pressure Stations are located throughout the community including workplaces, GP surgeries, hospitals, health clubs, leisure centres, shopping centres, supermarkets and of course your Swettenham Chemists. Call in and get to Know Your Numbers this week. Don't forget we offer FREE Blood Pressure Checks all day, every day of our hours of opening and live well for longer.
