This year’s event is taking place on Saturday 22nd April.
High blood pressure is a significant contributing factor to strokes, so community testing events are extremely important in raising public awareness and directing those in need to their GP.
It is estimated that in the UK 5.5 million people are undiagnosed with high blood pressure, something Rotary clubs across the country are trying to reduce.
In 2016, Rotary clubs hosted 360 events in communities across the country as part of a record breaking year for Know Your Blood Pressure Day, with 2,000 testing events taking place in total.
