Test Results
We will normally contact you directly if you need to see a doctor to get the results of any tests. Alternatively you may have been told to book a follow-up appointment. If you do need to find out the result directly, and would like to save an appointment for another patient to use, please ring between 15:00 and 18:00.

Home Blood Pressure Monitoring

The BHS recommends that only properly validated BP monitors be used both in the clinic and at home. All the monitors listed on their website have been clinically validated. This means that all the machines, regardless of their cost, give reliable readings when used correctly. Please note that added cost does not equate to added accuracy.
