High Blood Pressure Service
Do you know the easiest and most convenient way to keep track of your blood pressure?
It is actually to keep track of your blood pressure at home and by keeping a log of your blood pressure for a week. For many people you’ll only need to do this once a year.
Reduce the stress of making appointments and coming to the surgery by using our new home blood pressure service. It will also help you to get an accurate measurement of your blood pressure and could help you to reduce any medication side effects. Use our secure service by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, date of birth and the first line of your address, and we will get you started.
We are setting-up this service so that you can measure and look after your blood pressure at a time and place that is convenient to you. You will be able to use the service to get answers to any questions that you have about your blood pressure and we will provide any information you need to help you adjust your medications.
To use the service you will need your own email address and access to an automatic blood pressure monitor. These can be bought in most pharmacies and some supermarkets, starting from £10.
Please make sure that you use one with a cuff that goes around your upper arm, as these are more accurate.
We want to make this service easy and convenient to use. We are keen to hear your opinions, so be sure to email us at email@example.com with any feedback or questions.
We look forward to hearing from you, and helping you to look after your blood pressure at home.
