Home blood pressure checks to save lives

05/11/2021

Hundreds of thousands of people will be able to test their blood pressure at home, thanks to monitors on the NHS.

The devices are being made available to 220,000 people who have been diagnosed with uncontrolled high blood pressure and who could benefit from regular checks. Patients send the reading to their GP to review by telephone, email or through a digital remote monitoring platform.
