It is recommended that all clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) support primary care networks (PCNs) to implement blood pressure (BP) monitoring @home for patients with a diagnosis of Hypertension, to allow treatment to be optimised where necessary. Further NHS England guidance can be found here.
Please watch this 4-min video on the Ardens EMIS resources to support BPM@h.

To support practices with identifying Hypertension patients by 'at-risk' groups, the following Ardens searches are available.
To access the searches, navigate to the Population Reporting module > Ardens Searches > 2.1 Ardens Risk Stratification searches > COVID-19 Chronic Disease Risk Strat > Hypertension folder.
Ardens Hypertension Template
The Ardens Hypertension Template includes links to patient education guidance and the recording of the BP results.
