Blood pressure

Knowing your blood pressure is important as 1 in 4 adults in the UK have high blood pressure, which is the leading cause of heart attacks and strokes. It is also one of the many factors that affect your heart age.

Most people have no symptoms of high blood pressure, which is why it is important to get tested.

Learn more about blood pressure on the NHS website, or ask your local pharmacy for advice.
