6 million people in the UK have high blood pressure and don’t even know it. Every day in the UK, 350 people have a stroke or heart attack that could have been prevented.
Do you know your blood pressure numbers? Do your employees know theirs? If not, don’t worry as Staffordshire County Council's trusted partner Everyone Health can help.
Everyone Health are working with businesses across Staffordshire to help employees to receive their free NHS Health Check. These are available to people aged 40-74, who do not have a pre-existing health condition and have not had the check completed within the last 5 years.
Interested businesses with a high proportion of employees over 40 can contact Everyone Health to arrange an on-site NHS Health Check Day for staff. The check involves a blood pressure check and BMI calculation, as well as a finger prick blood test for high cholesterol.
