New technology that allows patients to monitor their blood pressure at home will be rolled out across Scotland.
The Scale-Up BP initiative reduces the need for GP consultations, and can help to deliver more accurate readings.
Patients are shown how to measure their own blood pressure and text the results to an app called Florence, or Flo. Their GP or practice nurse is then able to monitor the readings, and arrange a face-to-face appointment only when necessary.
