High blood pressure: action plan

Evidence-based advice on how partners including local government, the health system and others can effectively identify, treat and prevent high blood pressure (hypertension).



Public Health England and a number of partners across local and national government, the health service, voluntary sector and academia have come together with the ambition of improving the prevention, early detection and management of high blood pressure in England.

The action plan has been developed from the best evidence and practical experience of our group. It is intended to support partners at all levels to focus on the work that will have the biggest impact tackling this condition.

Leaders across national and local government, the health system, voluntary sector and academia explain how to prevent, detect and manage high blood pressure to improve the lives of people in England.
