For over 25 years, the trust has been providing home blood pressure monitors to patients in South Kesteven. The trust continues this work and embarked on a project to identify patients with Hypertension and Atrial Fibrillation, a major indicator of the likelihood of an ischaemic stroke. Based on statistics from the Stroke Association, we believe there might be 91 patients at risk within our area
In January 2018, with funding from T Balfe Construction, the Co-op Local Community Fund and our own resources, we purchased 178 new Home blood pressure monitors, which provide blood pressure readings and can identify atrial fibrillation. In February 2022 we purchased a further 60 monitors. To date we have identified 97 patients with undiagnosed atrial fibrillation who are now receiving treatment to reduce the risks from this condition. .
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we were unable to run a draw in 2020 and 2021.
We hope to run a bigger and better draw in 2022. We will again be selling tickets at the flu clinics but would welcome support in selling the tickets and donations of prizes. If you are interested in helping please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
