Blood pressure call to Somerset residents
7:00am Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
PEOPLE across Somerset are being urged to check their blood pressure as part of a campaign beginning next week.
The Know your Numbers drive will see free blood pressure checks and advice offered to adults.
Somerset county councillor Sam Crabb said: “Pressure stations are located throughout the community, including pharmacies, health clubs, leisure centres, shopping centres and supermarkets.
“With 16 million people in the UK believed to have high blood pressure, initiatives such as Know your Numbers Week are important at raising awareness.”
