Community blood pressure checks in pharmacies – supporting management of long-term conditions

Welcome to the Lancashire and South Cumbria information page for our work on delivering blood pressure checks in pharmacies for patients with long-term conditions.

Why are we offering this service?

For people with certain long-term conditions (including diabetes, atrial fibrillation and chronic kidney disease), understanding their blood pressure is a really important part of managing their condition. We know that it is not always easy for people to get their blood pressure taken so we are launching a new service, to be delivered through community pharmacies, to improve this access.

What does it involve?

People identified as being eligible for this service will be contacted by their GP practice and asked to visit a pharmacy to have a blood pressure reading taken. If you are or have been contacted, please try to do so as soon as you can.

When you visit the pharmacy, the pharmacist should be able to take your blood pressure reading without you needing an appointment.

The pharmacy team will be able to advise you if any action needs to be taken following your reading (for example, if it is high they may offer you a blood pressure monitor to wear for a set period of time at home to get a more detailed view of your blood pressure). The readings will also be passed on to your GP to make sure they are kept up to date.
