|A key diagnostic tool|
NHS England’s National Clinical Director for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention looks at the launch of a vital new resource: Blood Pressure – How Can We Do Better?, which has just been launched.
Each pack has one page of infographics that show how the CCG and local practices are performing in detection & management of high blood pressure, and show the potential for improvement. And there are 2 pages of practical key messages, written by fellow clinicians in primary care, that tell us how to we can improve care and outcomes for our patients … by doing things differently.So why is this so important? Well, it’s a fact that high blood pressure affects more than 1 in 4 adults in England, and is one of the leading risk factors for premature death & disability.
