The UK NSC recommendation on Hypertension screening in adults
Find general information about population health screening.
More about Hypertension (adult)
Blood pressure is defined as the amount of pressure exerted on the walls of the arteries as the blood moves through them. High blood pressure (hypertension) often causes no symptoms or immediate problems, but it is a major risk factor for developing a serious cardiovascular disease (conditions that can affect the circulation of blood around the body), such as a stroke or heart disease.
The stakeholder groups will be involved when the recommendation is next reviewed. If you think your organisation should be added, please contact us. More information for stakeholders can be found in appendix C of the UK NSC evidence review process.
