Dear patients,

As our clinicians change the way that they interact with our patients during the COVID-19 episode, using more telephone and video consultations, we felt it would be useful to offer some advice and guidance to checking and recording your own (or another's) observations, in preparation to speaking to one of our medical colleagues.

Please follow the links to the NHS and RCN advice pages.


How to record your own observations 


Pulse

How to check my pulse (NHS)

How to check someone else’s pulse (NHS)

How to check my blood pressure (NHS)

How to check my temperature (NHS)


How to count my respiratory rate (RCN)


Thank you for your understanding at this concerning time.

The Partners at Unsworth Group Practice
