Patients who have a long term condition will be called at least annually to be reviewed.
We recommend all patients with a long term condition purchase a blood pressure monitor to monitor their blood pressure at home. The British Heart Foundation has very useful information on how to take a blood pressure reading. Click here to visit their website.
Click here to see the British Hypertension Society list of recommended blood pressure monitors. There are many options around £30, and this can save you trips to the Practice to have a reading taken.
If you are unable to obtain a blood pressure monitor, please do not worry! We will take a reading in clinic at your annual review appointment, however we prefer a week's worth of readings where possible in order to calculate your average blood pressure over a period of time.
To submit your home blood pressure readings, please record them for a week prior to your appointment, and send them to us before your appointment via eConsult here
If you are unable to use eConsult, or would like to print a chart, download a Blood Pressure Monitoring Chart here
