We’re joining together with some other local GP surgeries to offer a blood pressure monitoring service to help support patients to monitor and manage their blood pressure remotely. While it’s important to be aware of your blood pressure level to help reduce the chances of any related problems (e.g. heart attacks or strokes), it may have been difficult for some patients to access regular readings during the past 18 months.
Each patient is referred to the programme by their GP practice. In order for GP surgeries to continue their focus on providing day-to-day clinical services to patients, this new programme is being managed by Alliance for Better Care (ABC), which is the GP Federation for the region and Surrey Heartlands Clinical Commissioning Group.
What to expect
- You will be contacted by ABC who will explain the process and what you need to do
- You receive your BP machine via post (unless you have one already). This will include information about what to do and how to use it, bus rest assured we’ll also support you through the process and will explain everything to you. The team will be on hand to answer any questions and resolve any issues with your monitor.
