Around 50% of those with hypertension (high blood pressure) do not know they have it. But with early intervention, more serious complications can often be avoided, so checking your blood pressure is key.
MMM increases awareness of the importance of getting blood pressure checked and screens many people who would not have previously known their blood pressure.
If you’d like to get your blood pressure measured during May Measurement Month, please follow us on social media to find out more and to see our announcements when our screening sites have been confirmed.
If you have any concerns regarding your blood pressure, please seek professional medical advice.
