A single blood pressure reading can never be used as a true indicator of your actual blood pressure. Using a blood pressure monitor over 24 hours gives a much more accurate picture of whether or not your blood pressure is higher than it should be. While 24 hour monitoring is usually carried out on the recommendation of your doctor you can also avail of this service yourself by simply calling in store and making an appointment with one of our pharmacists.
Following an initial consultation and explanation of the procedure you will then be given the device to take away with you. The monitor will measure your blood pressure at regular intervals and on returning to the pharmacy the pharmacist will go through your results and provide you with a printed copy for your doctor if required.
