Do It Online


Sometimes, we may ask you to record your blood pressure at home.   This gives us a series of readings over one week, from which we can calculate an average blood pressure.  This is often a more reliable figure than taking just one reading in the surgery which may be artificially elevated due to 'white coat syndrome' i.e. a degree of stress that comes purely from the fact one is 'at the doctors'.  

Please see the online documents below:

A) Blood Pressure form for completion at home: 

Home Blood Pressure Form and Instructions  You can either:

     1.  Print off the form, complete it, and then bring it in to the surgery with any loaned equipment

     2.  Download the form and save on your computer, and then email the form back to us at:  (you will need to 'enable editing' in order to complete the form electronically).
