We are delighted to offer a blood pressure monitoring service. Our pharmacist will give you the results during consultation and explain the results simply to you. It is a straightforward procedure where the cuff of the monitor is wrapped around your arm and inflated. While it is slowly deflated the Blood pressure is read. The pharmacist will then determine whether your reading is within normal levels. Advice will be given on whether further action is required or not.
