For most people, blood pressure should be less than 140/90 mmHg as an average. Everyone's blood pressure will vary, and occasional readings above this are not concerning as long as they are usually lower than 140/90 mmHg. If your blood pressure readings are higher than expected you should complete a blood pressure review, we will review your readings and advise about any further action.
Equally, if you are having a problem with your medication, or have another query or concern you can contact us in the same way.
However, if your blood pressure readings are repeatedly above 180/110 mmHg, it is important you seek medical advice straight away. You should telephone the surgery [link contact page] during opening hours, or dial 111 when we are closed.
Please note that you should telephone 999 if you have new symptoms of headaches, palpitations, sweating, chest pain or visual problems associated with blood pressure higher than 180/110 mmHg.
