You are invited to become a Workplace Blood Pressure Champion

Posted 11 July 2019 | 0 Comments

High blood pressure is a key risk factor for heart disease and stroke.

Did you know, in West Cheshire…

-Approximately 38,000 people are living with high blood pressure and don’t know it.
-Heart disease and stroke are still one of the leading causes of death.

Would you like to become a workplace blood pressure champion and help your colleagues be as familiar with their blood pressure number as they are with their pin number?

In collaboration with the British Heart Foundation, Cheshire West & Chester Council are running training sessions and providing blood pressure testing machines to train workplace blood pressure champions.

As a workplace blood pressure champion, you will:

  • Attend a three hour training session explaining how to use a blood pressure monitor and understand what a blood pressure reading means
  • Be given access to a blood pressure monitor to use in your workplace
  • Join a local network of blood pressure champions

These sessions will be held across West Cheshire, if you or your organisation are interested or would like to find out more, please contact publichealth@cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk
