MSP Backs High Blood Pressure Initiative

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has shown his support for the ‘'Know Your Numbers!' Week, which takes place from 10 - 16 September. 

Commenting on the initiative, Mr Stevenson said:

“Know Your Numbers Week will help to raise awareness about the dangers of uncontrolled high blood pressure which is responsible for 60% of strokes and 40% of heart attacks, resulting in needless deaths and disability.

“Keeping blood pressure at a healthy level is one of the most important things everyone can do to reduce these major causes of death and disability – and this can only be done if everyone gets tested to know their blood pressure numbers.

“For those wishing for more information, please visit:
