Blood Pressure Monitoring

Blood Pressure Test

A blood pressure test is a way of checking if your blood pressure is too high or too low.

You can get your blood pressure checked in the surgery, or if you have a digital home blood pressure monitor, you can use the form below to take your own readings.

You can buy a variety of inexpensive digital monitors that allow you to test your blood pressure at home. These can also be useful to monitor any conditions in the long term. As a piece of medical equipment it is important that any monitor you buy has been properly tested. The British Hypertension Society (BHS) has a list of blood pressure monitors you can buy.
