Home Blood Pressure Monitoring
It is increasingly thought that blood pressure measured at home can give us more useful information than that measured in surgery.
Occasionally a person's blood pressure can be artificially high when taken within a surgery or hospital setting, perhaps due to 'the stress' of having it measured - so called white-coat hypertension.
Your doctor or nurse may advise you to measure your blood pressure at home for one week and record the readings on a home blood pressure monitor form. A blood pressure monitor can be collected from reception. Please return them promptly after use so that we can ensure we have sufficient supply for all our patients.
The form can be printed below:

Please allow 2-3 days for your doctor to review the results and call reception on 01305 262886 to find our what your doctor suggests.
