Hypertension profiles

Profiles for each clinical commissioning group (CCG) and local authority summarising data about high blood pressure



High blood pressure is the leading risk factor for premature death and disability. Adults with high blood pressure are often not aware of it and not managing to the recommended level

The hypertension profiles complement Public Health England’s Tackling high blood pressure: from evidence to action report. Each PDF profile has chapters on prevention, detection and management. They have a wide range of data about hypertension for each local authority and clinical commissioning group (CCG) in England. They are for commissioners and health professionals to use when assessing the impact of hypertension on their local population, opportunities for improvement and making decisions about services and emerging issues.
