BLOOD PRESSURE

                                                                                                                                                                                  
When did you last have your blood pressure taken? If not in the last 5 years why not book in with the Health Care Assistant for a check. This is especially important if you are over 45 years of age.

For patients who's Blood Pressure result is high or low, or you have an upcoming annual check we may offer you a 7 day home Blood Pressure monitor. 

You can document your own Blood Pressure from home by taking a reading am & pm for 7 days. Either write your readings down and hand into the practice or sign up to our 'Florence BP' service where you can send us your results by text.

What is Florence? Blood Pressure

  • Florence is a simple, interactive service which uses text messages.
  • We often call the service 'Flo' for short.                                                                                                                   

How does Florence work?

  • Anybody with a mobile phone can be enrolled to use Florence.
  • You don't have to have a smart phone 
  • Receiving text messages from Flo and sending text messages is free of charge.

Flo is not an emergency response service - contact your Gp or ring 111 in the usual way, if you feel unwell.
