This clinic provides a service for people who have been diagnosed by their GP as having high blood pressure. Appointments include an assessment of blood pressure, blood test results and current medication as well as the opportunity to discuss how considering lifestyle issues i.e. diet, activity, smoking and weight can help improve blood pressure and general health.
Invitations to attend the clinic are sent 6 monthly and patients are encouraged to maintain contact with their GP between appointments. If you are attending this clinic and have a blood pressure machine at home, please bring a record of the readings with you.
Care is based on national guidelines for hypertension management which can be found on the British Hypertension Society website.
