Hypertension is a common problem that can be largely managed at the GP surgery level. Annual monitoring, treatment and control of patients blood pressure has proven to significantly reduce the incidence of stroke and chronic heart conditions.
We call all our hypertension patients annually to attend the surgery for review. The practice annual year for reviews runs from April to March each year. This year to minimise the spread of Coronavirus we are asking all our hypertension patients to complete the Home Blood Pressure Monitoring form below.
If you do not have a home blood pressure monitor it is worthwhile buying one. Please see a link below for some blood pressure monitors that our lead nurse has recommended.
If you do not wish to or are unable to buy a home blood pressure monitor you can call the surgery and book a hypertension review with a nurse.
The questionnaire when received will be reviewed by a GP or our clinical pharmacist and if necessary they may call you to further discuss your blood pressure or to review your blood pressure medication.
