A self testing kit is being launched for people in Norfolk with heart disease and lung failure.
Patients will be given a device to monitor their vital signs including blood pressure, pulse and temperature.

A series of roadshows start today to promote mental wellbeing and help reduce stigma around mental illness.
The Eastern Service Users and Carers Forum (ESCF) will be touring 10 towns and villages to make it easier for people to come and speak to the organisations involved in mental health.
"We often find that people in more rural areas can find it difficult to visit our hubs, so this is a way of promoting our local services to friends and family members of those with mental ill health. It's a chance for members of the public, especially those who have to be on hand 24 hours a day as a carer, to receive valuable advice and support."
Other organisations joining NSFT include; Healthwatch Norfolk, Healthwatch Suffolk, Norfolk Carers and Suffolk Family Carers.
