We worked with Healthwatch Oxfordshire to understand people’s experience of taking their blood pressure at home.

Healthwatch England managed the study. It was supported by five local Healthwatch, including Bucks and Oxfordshire. We used an online survey and in-depth interviews to collect the feedback between August and October 2021.

What did we find?

We had 159 survey responses and interviewed six people. We wrote a report summarising what we heard. We’ve had a joint response to our report from the Bucks and Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). They welcomed the report. They also said they will use our recommendations to support home blood pressure monitoring in the future.

As well as commenting on the individual recommendations the response said:

Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire CCGs would like to thank Healthwatch for this very helpful report. The report covers areas we are working to expand so is an extremely timely and valuable addition to our knowledge base.

The Healthwatch feedback and recommendations will be extremely valuable to share with GP practices as they develop more comprehensive programs to support home BP monitoring.
