Blood Pressure Review
Blood pressure should be measured over a 7 day period and checked in the morning and evening. If you have been advised by the practice to submit your blood pressure readings on a regular basis please use this form.
Due to the current situation we are keen to support patients with their blood pressure management. Where feasible it would be helpful if you can measure your blood pressure at home. The recordings can then be reviewed by a doctor and if necessary, medication dosages can be adjusted.
This new way of monitoring does not take away the value of seeing our patients face to face but is a helpful additional resource if we encounter a further lockdown or have to reduce footfall within the practice. If you are happy to check your blood pressure at home the British Hypertension Society have a list of BP machine manufacturers they recommend.
These machines be ordered online or purchased from a chemist.
A doctor or nurse will then get in touch with you having reviewed the readings and further instruction, if necessary, will be given.
