About us Hero



We are governed by a Board of Trustees who are responsible for the management and direction of Blood Pressure UK.

All our Trustees have full legal responsibility for our actions. They are unpaid volunteers, and all are experts in high blood pressure and its management.

The Board meets once a year and delegates day-to-day responsibility for the running of Blood Pressure UK to the Chief Executive Officer.
