As outlined at the Practitioners Forum on Thursday 23rd April, practices will shortly be receiving a series of CEG searches and pathways to facilitate identification and review of high-risk patients with long term conditions who may require remote monitoring while Covid-19 shielding measures are in place. The second tranche of this exercise will include Hypertension. City & Hackney CCG has coordinated a central purchase of home blood pressure monitors to support primary care to implement remote monitoring of these patients. These BP monitors will be delivered to practices from Tuesday 28th April. On receipt of the devices, practices are asked to sign and return the attached MOU to the CCG. Many thanks in advance.
