This clinic offers a number of different facilities. In the early days, when you or your doctor suspect that you may have raised blood pressure, you may be offered several appointments in the hypertension clinic for blood pressure monitoring, lifestyle advice and possibly to initiate some baseline investigations, such as blood testing, urine testing and an electrocardiogram (an electrical recording to assess your heart).
Many of these visits can be with one of the nursing assistants.
Later on, if your blood pressure remains raised, you may be started on some medication, to lower it. Once you are stabilised on the medication, your doctor may suggest that your appointments should alternate between himself/herself and the practice sister.
