About Blood Pressure UK

The work of Blood Pressure UK

Blood Pressure UK is the charity dedicated to lowering the UK's blood pressure. Our vision is that everyone will know their blood pressure numbers, in the same way that they know their height or weight, and take steps to keep them healthy both now and in the future.

Since October 2000 we have been making a real difference to the 16 million people affected by high blood pressure in the UK. We work to make sure that high blood pressure is at the top of everyone's health agenda: within the Government, among health professionals, in the media and for every adult in the UK, particularly those at risk from high blood pressure.

Helping you take control

As the only UK-wide charity that focuses solely on tackling high blood pressure, we offer a wide range of information and support to help people take control of, or avoid, this condition. 

All this information and support is available in our booklets, leaflets, and through our website. 

In addition, you can support us by becoming a member of our charity. We produce Positive Pressure, a magazine for Blood Pressure UK members that brings you news, articles from experts, personal stories of people with high blood pressure and special offers, all to help you lower your blood pressure for life.

You can help us make things better

We hope that you will find our web site useful as you take control of your blood pressure and lower it for life. We are here to help you prevent stroke and heart disease so join us and take control of your blood pressure, don't let it take control of you!

By purchasing your DVD guide to blood pressure, our fast facts on hypertension book, any of our resources or Christmas cards from us, you can help us to help others take control too.
