Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a diagnosis given to those with ongoing high blood pressure readings. If you are suspected to have this condition, you will be asked by the doctor or nurse to monitor your blood pressure readings at home before a diagnosis is made – it is not made on ONE reading only.
Once you have been diagnosed with hypertension it is important that your blood pressure readings are recorded every year to check that you are on the right medication. The most accurate way of doing this is by home monitoring.
You will be contacted annually and asked for home blood pressure readings and to attend for a blood test. This blood test includes measuring your kidney function and cholesterol levels and checking for diabetes (HBA1C). We measure your kidney function to check that neither the blood pressure nor the medication that you are taking is affecting how your kidneys work. Cholesterol and diabetes bloods are measured as they are separate risk factors for heart problems and may need treatment if raised.
When you are asked for home BP readings, we ask that you provide us with an average of 3 days of readings if possible.

You will need to purchase a machine for home monitoring. Please see the following guidance for further information about this:
We thank you for your help in managing your own blood pressure and hope that you can see the benefits to both you and the practice in preventing problems in the future caused by high blood pressure.
