The surgery staff are here to help provide any information in an 'accessible' way for all patients by identifying patient or carer information and communication needs (whether caused by disability, impairment or sensory loss) eg. access to LARGE print information leaflets or correspondence.
Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM)
Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) is a useful way of monitoring blood pressure and helping patients with their BP control much more effectively than taking one-off BP readings in the surgery.
