We would like to invite you to a meeting to present a new way of monitoring your blood pressure (Florence) with Dr A Drummond Begg.
You need to be able to use a mobile phone and preferably have your own BP machine (if not please come along and we may be able to supply you with one depending on demand) to measure your blood pressure at home.
This meeting is only for people with a diagnosis of high blood pressure, chronic kidney disease, a past history of stroke, heart disease and peripheral vascular disease i.e. people who need to have their blood pressure monitored each year.
DATE: Thursday 27th June 2019
VENUE: Penicuik Town Hall, 33 High Street Penicuik, EH26 8HS
TIME: 15:00 pm for a prompt start at 15:30 pm.
The meeting should last approximately 1hr. If you are interested in attending, please contact Penicuik Medical Practice, on 01968 672612 and leave your Name, DOB and Mobile Number. For more information please go to: www.getflorence.co.uk

Appointments for a Saturday will be pre-booked and, as there will be no telephone access, cancellations will need to be done in advance, or by a note posted through the door.
