High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)

High blood pressure, or hypertension, rarely has noticeable symptoms but if it goes untreated, increases the risk of serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes.

More than 1 in 4 adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many won’t realise it.

The only way to find out if your blood pressure is high is to have your blood pressure checked.
