Home Blood Pressure Monitoring

Home blood pressure monitoring has become more and more common due to the simplicity of the procedure and the increased access to home blood pressure monitoring kits. 

Since October 2020, hundreds of thousands of home blood pressure monitoring kits have been given out to patients across England. If you would like to buy a blood pressure monitor, many places sell these kits such as the British Heart Foundation Shop; online retailers (for example, Amazon); or your local pharmacy or supermarket.

Who needs to measure their blood pressure at home?

Regularly monitoring your blood pressure at home is best suited if you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure or have a long-term health condition such as heart disease, or diabetes; or have suffered from a heart attack or stroke. Consistently recording your blood pressure morning and night for 7 days once a month can help you avoid having to visit the doctor regularly.

Why is home blood pressure monitoring important?

If your blood pressure is too high, it puts extra strain on your blood vessels, heart and other organs, such as the brain; kidneys and eyes. Persistent high blood pressure can then increase your risk of developing more serious and life-threatening conditions, such as a stroke or heart attack. To avoid this, keeping a 7-day record once a month of readings taken in the morning, and before you sleep at night, can help your doctor make sure you stay healthy.

Home blood pressure monitoring check

Please be advised that once receiving your home blood pressure monitor, you get your doctor to check it over so it remains accurate and working properly every year. You can ask your GP to do this at The Brooke Surgery.
