Blood pressure action plan

Key steps that can help you manage your blood pressure.

Simply, download and print the PDF version available below, review each action and tick the relevant columns. Make a start once you've chosen the actions you are ready to do now.  

Important actions

The most important action in this plan is to take your medicines as prescribed. There are risks if you don’t take them. If you’re ‘not ready’ to do this, see your doctor to discuss why. Your doctor may be able to prescribe a different medicine if you are worried about side effects.
