To improve the detection and management of high blood pressure (BP), GPs, nurses and pharmacists of the CVD Leadership Forum have worked with the BHF and Public Health England (PHE), National Cardiovascular Intelligence Network (NCVIN), Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP), Stroke Association, Blood Pressure UK and British and Irish Hypertension Society to create the ‘BP: How can we do better?’ resource.

Using data from the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF), PHE, this resource is not only a comprehensive summary of CCG-level BP care across the nation, but also provides recommendations for improving care, both at a CCG and practice level.

Local and national resources can be found here
