The forgotten pandemic is high blood pressure and home blood pressure monitoring is an effective and inexpensive way to keep blood pressure under control and the evidence behind it continues to get stronger.
It gives you a way to take control of your health, feel confident and take the pressure off the NHS at the same time, as there’s no need to visit your GP, practice nurse or pharmacist in person.
It puts you in the driver’s seat, and it really can save lives.
People aged 40-74 years old may also be eligible for a FREE NHS health check which includes a blood pressure check.
If you receive a letter from your GP surgery or local council inviting you for a free NHS Health Check make sure you attend.
