Gogglebox star supports Wirral Council's blood pressure testing day

WIRRAL Council are inviting people to follow in the footsteps of Gogglebox's Viv Woerdenweber and have their blood pressure checked for free at Birkenhead Market on Wednesday, 14 September 2016. The day has been arranged to coincide with Know Your Numbers! week, the UK's biggest blood pressure testing event, which this year runs between 12
September to 18 September 2016.

Nearly 50,000 adults in Wirral have been diagnosed with high blood pressure (hypertension) and another 45,000 have it, but don't know it.

Having high blood pressure is a big problem; the heart has to work harder to pump blood around the body which can weaken the heart over time. High blood pressure also places a strain on the walls of arteries, making a blockage more likely and also increases the risk of serious health problems such as heart disease, stroke and kidney disease.

Viv Woerdenweber said:- "Know Your Numbers! week is a fantastic initiative, helping to identify people living with undiagnosed high blood pressure and raising awareness of this silent killer."

Fiona Johnstone, Director of Public Health, Wirral Council said:- "High blood pressure isn't usually something that you can feel or notice but if you have it you're more likely to have a heart attack or stroke, so it's important it doesn't go undiagnosed."

Nurses from Public Health will be on stall P18, between 9am to 4pm, offering free blood pressure checks and advice. The event is also supported by ABL Wirral, who will be on hand to offer free support for anyone wishing to stop smoking.
