Florence is a simple Telehealth System using text messaging to monitor your blood pressure.  This has been introduced by NHS Scotland and is in wide use through NHS Highland. It will help us to manage your BP and may limit the need for you to attend the surgery on a regular basis. 

If you are suffering with high blood pressure, or we are determining your diagnosis of high blood pressure, or adjusting your medications, you will be loaned a blood pressure monitor and shown how to use it. 

Florence will send you a text message at the times when you need to take your blood pressure.  The frequency will be determined by your need. 

Please find below a helpful link which illustrates how to take your blood pressure.
