Know Your Numbers
Know Your Numbers week takes place between 9 -15 September each year. The national campaign developed by Blood Pressure UK and adapted for local use by the Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership, encourages adults across the UK to know their blood pressure numbers and take the necessary action to reach and maintain a healthy blood pressure by simple lifestyle changes.
There are over 8,000 people in Knowsley with undiagnosed high blood pressure, which increases the risk of stroke, heart attack or heart failure.
We are working in partnership with Volair to host a number of blood pressure testing stations at all 5 leisure centres during the week. Residents can also have their blood pressure checked at their local pharmacy or GP practice.

Prescot Town Council supports local National Citizen Service
Local NCS Youth volunteers offered their assistance last week in the painting of the concrete wall at Eaton Street Park as part of their Social Action part of the National Citizen Service.
Prescot Town Council supplied all the materials and Prescot Town Councillors along with members of the Friends of Eaton Street Park helped out.
The Mayor of Prescot was also on hand to show her appreciation.What a great job they all did and the wall looks so much better now (see photographs below).
Prescot Town Council would like to say a big thank you to all those involved in the project.
