Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring is the gold standard to diagnose high blood pressure and helps differentiate it from "white coat" hypertension. One off blood pressure readings provide only a snapshot of blood pressure on a particular day and can be misleading but only ambulatory blood pressure monitoring can provide a comprehensive measurement to identify those individuals most at risk of high blood pressure in order to potentially reduce the risk of future strokes and heart disease through targeted therapy.
You will need a consultation with Mr Ment at MUMS – who will examine you, take a history, fit the monitor and remotely review your readings. The cost of a consultation with Mr Ment is £230.00. If a 24 Hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure appliance is fitted the cost of fit/readings review is £380.00
You will need a follow up consultation which costs £150.00.
You do not need a referral from your NHS GP.
There are no waiting times at MUMS to see Mr Ment.
