Home Blood Pressure Monitoring
You can now use your own home blood pressure machine to help us look after your blood pressure. This might be convenient if you are busy and / or find it tricky to find time to come into surgery to have it done. It might also benefit if you get “white coat” hypertension (higher blood pressure just when you come into surgery).
You can ask for a standard monitoring form to complete over a seven day period from reception or from your GP or nurse. Alternatively you can download the form here. These forms require you to take your blood pressure four times a day over a seven day period and then work out an average.
If you prefer you can download the same form in “Excel” Format. This will work out the average for you. It can then be printed and returned or mailed back to us using the form below.
If you do not have your own machine you can buy one from most good Pharmacists. A list of approved devices can be found here
