Condition

Topic: Primary Care; Subtopic: Primary Care; Disease: All Diseases

Intervention

Eligible patients are sent a letter asking if they are interested in having their monitor tested for accuracy. Those who respond (by telephone or post) will be asked to drop off their monitor to the practice on a prearranged day. Monitors will be tested and returned to participants with results within 2 weeks.

The procedure will be to test patients’ blood pressure (BP) monitors using the OMRON PA350 digital BP tester. Monitors will be inflated following a standard process as recommended by each monitor manufacturer and the British Hypertension Society, with a pass rate of +/- 3mmHg or less from the PA350 reading.
