Blood Pressure Review
If you have been advised by the surgery to submit your blood pressure readings on a regular basis please use this form.
The ideal blood pressure targets are less than 140/90mmHg for those aged under 80 and less than 150/90mmHg for those aged 80 and above.
Please rest for five minutes and take three blood pressure readings and document the lowest reading:
If this is above the target for your age group, then please check your blood pressure twice a day for seven days and submit your readings in the form below – the average will be calculated for you.
Your annual blood tests for Hypertension (high blood pressure) are usually done in your birth month unless you are having them checked more frequently for any other reason.
Please call the medical centre to book in for your blood tests if this is your annual review month and inform the receptionists that you need to book in for your CHRONIC DISEASE MANAGEMENT ANNUAL BLOOD TESTS.
