Know Your Numbers! Manchester

Kinetik Wellbeing’s award-winning blood pressure awareness event in partnership with Blood Pressure UK is back and better than ever! This year, we’re focusing on Manchester, where we’ll be offering free blood pressure checks throughout the city.

During July and August 2024 we’re working in partnership with Well Pharmacy, giving you the opportunity to get a free blood pressure check from one of their participating pharmacies (find your nearest one below).

During the 6th – 8th of September 2024 look out for our new Wellbeing Pod as we’ll be traveling round Manchester, spreading awareness about the dangers of high blood pressure (also known as hypertension) and offering free blood pressure checks.

DO YOU KNOW YOUR NUMBERS?

Around 69,000 people in Manchester have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, and many more may have it without knowing.

High blood pressure causes could include being overweight, having an unhealthy diet, smoking and other genetic factor. Untreated high blood pressure can lead to serious health events such as strokes or heart attacks. This is why it’s important to know your numbers so that you can treat your high blood pressure if needed.

      KNOW YOUR NUMBERS! 2022

      During Know Your Numbers! 2022, we travelled to Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham and London in the Kinetik Wellbeing blood pressure bus, measuring the nation’s blood pressure for free. We managed an impressive 2,900 blood pressure checks, helping people gain a better understanding of their blood pressure and how to keep it within a healthy range.

      KNOW YOUR NUMBERS! 2023

      Last year, we focused on educating people about blood pressure and empowering their ongoing blood pressure management journey. Which is why we didn’t just travel round the nation giving free blood pressure checks, but also created My Blood Pressure, a free digital service helping people track their blood pressure, get reliable clinical advice and delicious heart-healthy recipes to name a few features.
