Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists – Flo stars in new guidance for safe home monitoring



Supporting ladies to monitor their BP safely at home for pregnancy induced hypertension is one of Flo’s most mature & evidenced uses, with numerous sites adapting existing community protocols to suit their local needs. 

This innovation continues, most recently in Nottinghamshire, where the Local Maternity Systems are engaging in a rapid role-out of BP monitoring for postnatal and antenatal ladies.  The driver to implement the pathway originates from a desire to help reduce the number of clinic appointments ladies would need to attend during the current COVID-19 outbreak, which has the added benefits of convenience for patients, but also released capacity for clinicians.

Dr Kim Hinshaw at City Hospitals Sunderland was involved in a peer review of the guidance prior to publication.  Kim and his team in Sunderland have worked with Flo for anumber of years to support women with PIH, and their learning and experience has contributed greatly to the Community of Practice since the implementation of their pathway.  You can find out more by taking a look at this short video.


As part of the guidance, safe BP ranges & corresponding advice is given (depending on if women are prescribed BP medication or not).  Simple Shared Healthcare has made available a protocol that adheres to these ranges and the advice given, with the aim of maintaining high levels of patient safety during this difficult time.
