Taking care of your blood pressure together
Hypertension Plus is the programme that helps you and your doctor to keep your blood pressure in a healthy range.
Why choose Hypertension Plus?
You can manage your blood pressure along with your doctor — all from the comfort of home. By sharing your blood pressure readings via an easy-to-use app, your doctor will always have a full picture of your blood pressure and can make sure you’re on the right medication plan.
How the programme works
Your blood pressure will be managed with the help and guidance of your own doctor.

Frequently asked questions
It’s natural to have questions when joining a new programme. Here’s some questions that others have asked us:
During an appointment, the doctor can see my state of mind and understand more about my situation than just seeing my readings. How is the app going to fill this gap?
Besides receiving accurate readings from the app, your doctor can also investigate how you are feeling with a little questionnaire in the app. This will help them to understand your status beyond the blood pressure readings.
Does it mean that a computer will decide what is best for me instead of my doctor?
No, your own doctor will be the one looking at your data and ultimately deciding what is best for you.
Am I forced to change my medication without being able to ask my doctor why?
No, you can contact your doctor in the usual way to ask questions and discuss your situation at any time. But the programme gives you the peace of mind that your doctor is aware of your recent blood pressure measurements and means you can save the time of regular visits to the surgery.
I have already got my blood pressure under control, so why do I need this programme?
It helps you and your doctor to keep a closer eye on your blood pressure and make sure you are getting the best care. The measurement week allows your doctor to see how you are responding to your prescribed medication so that they can make adjustments if your values indicate that your situation has changed.
