Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) is commissioned to deliver a key public health programme to address one of the country’s most serious causes of premature deaths.
High blood pressure affects more than 1 in 4 adults in the UK and is the 3rd biggest risk factor for premature death after smoking and poor diet.
Having persistent high blood pressure puts a strain on blood vessels, heart and other organs, like kidneys, eyes and brain. Persistent high blood pressure increases the risk of potentially life-threatening conditions like heart failure, stroke, kidney disease and vascular dementia.
High blood pressure is often described as a ‘silent killer’ as it rarely causes symptoms, so it’s really important to get it checked.
CACT has been commissioned by the Royal Borough of Greenwich and the British Heart Foundation to deliver a Hypertension Prevention Programme which aims are to increase awareness of high blood pressure, deliver blood pressure checks throughout the Borough and improve access to care for those who have high blood pressure.It also provides lifestyle advice on how to maintain a healthy blood pressure.
Commissioned by the Royal Borough of Greenwich and the British Heart Foundation, CACT delivers a Hypertension Prevention programme. The health team will be touring the Royal Borough for the next eight weeks to deliver the programme.
