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.
Identification of Target Populations
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 > 1.12 LTC Reviews - Risk Strat > Chronic Disease Risk Stratification - UCLP criteria > Hypertension folder.
The following Ardens templates can be used for recording data:
- ECG + AF or Hypertension Screening
