Blood pressure check

by Thomas Cox

It’s estimated that around 18,000 people in Telford and Wrekin have undiagnosed high blood pressure.

High blood pressure rarely causes any symptoms – earning it the nickname, “the Silent Killer,” as people often only discover they have it after having a stroke or heart attack.

The only way to know whether you are risk from high blood pressure is to have it measured.

As part of Know Your Numbers Week a range of local events will be on in Telford and Wrekin where people can get their blood pressure taken for free.
