How to measure home blood pressure

During the current  Coronavirus outbreak, it may be helpful to measure your BP at home.

In usual times, it may be helpful to check Home BP each morning and evening:

  • for the seven-day period before a clinic visit (or planned  telephone consultation)
  • approximately four weeks after a change in medication.

Just now  doing it  a couple of times week would be reasonable.

Writing it down is useful so you can send it to your GP, or bring it to any appointment.
