‘White Coat Syndrome’, also known as White Coat Hypertension or the White Coat Effect, describes a patient experiencing high blood pressure and anxiety when in a clinical situation.
The condition is not uncommon, with as many as 1 in 8 people experiencing White Coat Syndrome.
As well as being potentially upsetting for patients, higher blood pressure as the result of White Coat Syndrome can lead to procedures or treatments being postponed or cancelled where a higher blood pressure reading indicates a potential risk.
At Practice Plus Group Hospital, we will do all we can to help alleviate the symptoms associated with anxiety within these clinical situations, including:
- Inviting patients who are affected by White Coat Syndrome to a tour of the hospital
- Arranging for patients to meet the care team before their treatment
- Offering quiet areas for blood pressure checks
- Taking blood pressure readings several times throughout an appointment – often blood pressure lowers as the patient relaxes.
To be able to receive a clinical assessment or treatment from us, you’ll first need to be referred by your Optician/Optometrist or GP.
When we receive your referral we’ll get in touch with you to make your first appointment. You’ll then receive a confirmation letter with any other information relevant to the examination you’ll be having with us.
You will be seen at a local clinic by a multi-professional team who will assess you and provide same day treatment where possible.
If you can’t make it to your appointment please contact the centre to let us know as soon as possible. We’ll do our best to reschedule your appointment for a time and date that suits you.

Cataract surgery, Rochdale – the care given was second to none
Cataract surgery, Rochdale – delivered life changing results
This Autumn and Winter, I have had cataract surgery to both eyes carried out by the ophthalmic team at Rochdale. Friendly staff greet patients at clean, modern facilities after well-organised appointments…they run more to time than most health services and an outstanding surgical team delivered life changing results! I could not recommend this service enough.
