What is Hypertension (high blood pressure)?
Your heart is pumping blood to your brain and the rest of your body and the ‘blood pressure’ is the force placed on the walls of your arteries. If the pressure is consistently too high, it puts a strain on your heart and could lead to strokes, heart attacks and kidney damage.
The 1st step to reducing your risk is to check your blood pressure regularly — so that your doctor can give you the best advice and an up-to-date and personalised treatment plan.
What is Hypertension Plus?
Hypertension plus is a platform created by OMRON, which is being rolled out across the Farnborough GP practices enabling patients who have been diagnosed with Hypertension and that have been identified and are eligible for the free service to monitor their condition remotely.
If you are eligible for the service, you will receive an invite to join the programme from your GP. There is no need to contact your practice.
