Older and frail people are likely to be more susceptible to postural hypotension, than other groups. As it can take time, effort and discomfort to enable lying down and standing blood pressure measurement, this may be a time and resource constraint in primary care to allow for both the facilities and time for this to take place, particularly when patients have mobility issues.
