After consultation with our Patient Participation Group we would like to purchase a couple of Blood Pressure machines to loan out to patients who need to check their blood pressure at home for a specific amount of days, as requested by the GP. This will help with the diagnosis of Hypertension etc.... The Blood Pressure machines would be available for patients to “loan” for a week so they can monitor their B/P at home so the GP’s can use this information regarding their future care, and possibly negate the need for a referral to hospital. The machines would be available to all patients. We do have B/P machines in the surgery but these are used by the clinicians so cannot leave the practice.Ref: CoW 503
We would love a portable projector to enhance training that we provide to staff teams, families and homes out in the community.
