Campaign to get the right numbers for blood pressure

Campaign to get the right numbers for blood pressure

A campaign in Thanet is asking people to get their blood pressure checked and find out the results to make sure that the blood pressure is under control. The campaign advertised with the phrase "know your numbers".

The campaign was conducted for a whole week from 16th September to the 22nd of September and was referred to as the national awareness week which encouraged people to check if their blood pressure test had "lucky numbers" confirming to be within the permitted limit.

The campaign was carried out due to the fact that almost 15 percent of the adult residents from Thanet complain of high blood pressure with even more possibilities to be diagnosed with high blood pressure.

A possibility says that as many as one-third of the residents could be unaware of their condition and would be able to get the right information through the campaign.

Chairperson of NHS Thanet Clinical Commissioning Group, Dr Tony Martin says that they were happy that UK was raising awareness of the damaging health risks associated with high blood pressure. It was easy to understand that having the pressure too high in your central heating system would damage it and its components.
