Blood Pressure Monitoring Project - Jagdish Kumar

This national programme is being funded by NHSE/I for people diagnosed with hypertension to allow treatment to be optimised where necessary. Home blood pressure monitoring has been identified as a priority for CVD management during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. To ensure that patients who are vulnerable to becoming seriously ill with COVID, can manage their hypertension well and remotely, without the need to attend GP appointments.

We are pleased that all 23 of our practices have agreed to support this project and that patients can receive their own BP machine and become experts in monitoring and managing their hypertension with effective support from clinicians.
