Blood Pressure UK is looking for groups in Merseyside to work with to get key information out

The charity Blood Pressure UK is working with the South Asian community to get key messages out about high blood pressure and if necessary, the steps needed to reduce it e.g. lifestyle changes and/or medication.

High blood pressure is a large cause of strokes and heart attacks with approximately 16 million people in the UK with high blood pressure and one in three unaware that their blood pressure is high.

People from the South Asian community have a higher risk of developing high blood pressure, due to this Blood Pressure UK is reaching out to charities/community groups in Merseyside to work with to get information out to the communities that they serve.

For more information, please go to the Blood Pressure UK website or contact info@bloodpressureuk.org if you want to get involved.
