Remote Hypertension Management

What is Hypertension

High blood pressure, also known as hypertension or raised blood pressure, is when your blood pressure, the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your blood vessels, is consistently too high. Around a third of adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many will not realise it.

The only way to find out if your blood pressure is high is to have your blood pressure checked. High blood pressure rarely has noticeable symptoms, but persistent and untreated high blood pressure can increase the risk of several serious and potentially life-threatening health conditions such as heart attacks and strokes.
