Hypertension Prevalence Model

Public Health England's National Cardiovascular Intelligence Network have successfully published their Hypertension Prevalence Model. Healthcare professionals can use this resource to estimate the number of adults with hypertension (high blood pressure) in their local area. The data also shows the variation in the condition across local areas. This can help with planning and commissioning local services. The estimates are at GP practice, CCG and local authority level and for the whole of England. The data presents estimates for adults aged 16 years or older and replace previous hypertension estimates published by Public Health England in 2016. The estimates use data from the Health Survey for England and a statistical model created by Public Health England.

Week (9-15 September 2019), charity Blood Pressure UK is calling for the ‘missing millions’ i.e. the nearly 6 million1 people living in the UK who have undiagnosed high blood pressure to get tested as part of a nationwide campaign to prevent 230,000 related cardiovascular diseases and save £120m to the NHS and social care system over the next 20 years.

NHS Health Check Review

The NHS Health Check Programme is not being "scrapped". Rather the Governments evidence review is an opportunity to make it even more effective at reaching the 50% of people who do not take up the current offer-and those who would benefit from a more frequent check. Local Government and the NHS will need to work together to make the next generation of health checks the best available in the world.
