Tackling high blood pressure: from evidence into action


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.

This action plan has been developed from the best evidence and practical experience of the group. It is intended to support partners at all levels to focus on the work that will have the biggest impact in tackling high blood pressure.

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.
