Our service helps to check your blood pressure measurements as you move around, living your normal daily life, both during the day and when asleep at night.

Our service consists of two consultations. The first involves fitting you with a blood pressure measuring device to wear, which includes a cuff around your upper arm that will measure your blood pressure for 24 hours. The second, where the measurement results will be provided by a trained pharmacist. The service is available to those aged 18 years and over.

Please note that our appointment bookings are managed by Swiftqueue, on behalf of Boots.

Did you know half of people with high blood pressure aren't aware they have the condition?

High blood pressure can affect people of all ages but doesn't always have symptoms. If it goes untreated, it may lead to conditions like heart disease or a stroke.

Some people who have a high blood pressure reading at the doctor or pharmacy have a normal reading at home. Monitoring your blood pressure for 24 hours can help work out if it's consistently high.

How much is the service?

The service is available at selected Boots stores and costs €60.

Can I just get a single blood pressure measurement?

If you want to simply check your blood pressure reading by getting a single blood pressure check you can do this by availing of our Blood Pressure Check Service and book an appointment by clicking the link here.

Frequently asked questions

How long will each consultation take?

Both the fitting and results consultations will take about 10 to 15 minutes.

How long do I need to wear the device?

You'll be fitted with a blood pressure monitoring device to wear for 24 hours, including while you sleep. Don't worry, you can still carry on with most of your day-to-day activities while wearing the device and it's unlikely to wake you while you sleep.

The device will record your blood pressure at various points during the day. Each time a reading is taken during the day, you'll need to fill in a diary with what you were doing.

Do I need 24-hour monitoring?

You might find it useful if you or your doctor suspect you have high blood pressure and you:

• Have been diagnosed with borderline high blood pressure

• Take medicines to reduce your blood pressure

• Experience blood pressure that's hard to control

• Already live with conditions such as diabetes or high cholesterol, which affect your heart

• Want to check for Atrial Fibrillation (irregular heartbeat) – this is checked while measuring your blood pressure

What happens when the blood pressure monitoring device is taking a reading?

When it's time to take a reading, you'll feel the cuff inflate and squeeze your arm as it finds your blood pressure.

• Sit down and keep your arm completely still

• For the best reading, rest your arm on a table or other surface and keep it horizontal, at the same level as your heart

• The monitor might need to take more than one reading if it fails on the first attempt

• Avoid crossing your legs and speaking during the recording

After the reading has been taken, you'll be able to carry on with your everyday activities.

If you take blood pressure medication, then each time you take it, press the 'pill' button on the device.

Avoid driving, showering or doing vigorous exercise while wearing the device.
