Details

Healthcare professionals can use this resource to estimate the number of people with hypertension (high blood pressure) in their local area and the number of people who may have undiagnosed hypertension. The data also shows the variation in the condition across the local area. This can help with planning and commissioning local services.

The estimates are at GP practice and CCG level and for the whole of England. The data presents estimates for total population and people over 16.

The estimates use data from the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF), the Health Survey for England and a statistical model created by Imperial College London.

The document that accompanies the estimates is a summary analysis report of the estimates.
