Raised blood pressure is common. It causes very few symptoms but treatment can prevent the risk of stroke or heart disease. Decisions about how much blood pressure medication to take and when to change it are made by GPs and nurses taking blood pressure in the surgery.

Our research aims to find out whether high blood pressure is better controlled using blood pressure readings taken by patients at home compared to clinic readings. Study participants will be asked to send their home readings to the surgery by post (self-monitoring) or by free text message (tele-monitoring) and the GP will adjust the medication if necessary to achieve the best health care for patients.
