Keeping an eye on your Blood Pressure : At present you cannot come to the
surgery to do a check but you can monitor this at home.
If you are able to purchase a Blood pressure monitor you can buy from any Chemists they must be British Hypertension Society approved ones . Remember that you must not share these between households at this time as the virus can remain active on surfaces for 72 hours. Keep a record of your blood pressure readings so that they are ready for your next review which could of course be by phone.
Simple advice on home monitoring may be found at: –
The NHS website has advice online for the public on spotting the signs for domestic abuse and domestic violence and where to go for help. The NHS also has a help page for those who have been raped or sexually assaulted.
The Home Office have launched a national campaign to raise awareness of the dedicated support available. The campaign will highlight that isolation rules do not apply in the case of domestic abuse and that police response and support services remain available.
If you are worried that someone you know is a victim of domestic abuse, you can call the National Domestic Abuse Helpline for free and confidential advice, 24 hours a day on 0808 2000 247.
If you believe there is an immediate risk of harm to someone, or it is an emergency, always call 999.
