Blood Pressure - Be Sure

In conjunction with the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) are delivering the 'Blood Pressure - Be Sure' Programme, aiming to increase awareness, deliver blood pressure checks throughout the Borough and improve access to care for people who have high blood pressure. Almost half of those who have high blood pressure don't know it, and are unaware of the risks. 

High blood pressure puts strain on blood vessels, heart and other organs such as kidneys, eyes and brain. Having persistent high blood pressure can increase the risk of developing potentially life-threatening conditions like heart failure, strokes, kidney disease and vascular dementia, so it's really important to have it checked.
