Home Monitoring Your Blood Pressure

By TEC Team, Mon, 10/02/2020

NHS Scotland is scaling up the use of text messaging to manage blood pressure in line with the Scottish Government priority for 2020/23.

People are already using this system successfully to send in blood pressure readings to their General Practice, saving them appointments and time away from work or caring responsibilities, while helping them keep their blood pressure at safe levels.

Where appropriate, patients are given a blood pressure monitor and instructions but see the video below for further explanation.
