Measure your own Blood Pressure

Its always helpful to have a blood pressure reading at different times of day, in different circumstances and before you are in front of the doctor or nurse for your health check. If you are due a blood pressure check please use the waiting room machine before your appointment so we have a reference reading that avoids the “White Coat” effect. Other self check equipment available are an electronic baby scales (in the baby change room), an automated weighing and BMI machine and a height check. If you find these aids helpful tell us and we can expand the range.
