Details

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

The estimates are at GP practice, CCG and local authority level and for the whole of England. The data presents estimates for adults aged 16 years or older and replace previous hypertension estimates published by Public Health England in 2016.

The estimates use data from the Health Survey for England and a statistical model created by Public Health England.

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