Blood Pressure Monitoring

As part of the wider Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Programme, the AHSN NENC is delivering local projects to reduce hypertension and encourage home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM), supporting nationally driven initiatives to encourage patients to remotely monitor their blood pressure.

This positively impacts on resource pressures in primary care and enables people to be more active in the own healthcare.

Aims

The AHSN NENC works collaboratively with partners to encourage and support regular monitoring of BP at home whilst being conscious of not widening healthcare inequalities.

Delivery in the North East and North Cumbria

A public awareness campaign supporting patients to use Home Blood Pressure Monitors (HBPM) is planned and will be rolled out in 2021.
