Home Blood Pressure Monitors

A good way of making sure you get the best blood pressure reading, particularly if you need to take regular readings is to use a home blood pressure monitor.

You can buy a machine for your own use at home for around £20. The pharmacist will be happy to advise about the best type of machine for you.

For detailed information about how to monitor with a home blood pressure machine, please follow the link below:  Home Blood Pressure Monitoring Instructions
