Self-monitoring your blood pressure, oxygen levels and temperature at home

During the COVID-19 pandemic the use of self-monitoring equipment may be a useful tool.

The use of home blood pressure monitors can help our patients to self-monitor their health as much as possible and allow us to reduce the numbers of patients that need to come in to the surgery. The use of thermometers and oxygen monitors at home may be helpful for patients who are shielding to monitor their health, for patients with severe asthma or COPD and in cases of COVID-19 in order for unwell patients to monitor their health and seek advice if needed.

We would encourage all our patients who are interested to read the information below and find out more information about these devices. If and after reading the information you would like to purchase one of these devices we would recommend you speak to your local pharmacists Boots, Lloyds and Murrays in Ludlow who will be able to advise you and offer you a choice of items to purchase. They will be more than happy to help you.
