Hypertension in adults: diagnosis and management

National Institute for Health and Care Excellence

Hypertension is one of the most important preventable causes of premature morbidity and mortality in the UK, and its management is one of the most common interventions in primary care.

This Guidelines summary has been updated due to new evidence, which suggests that using 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring is a more accurate and cost-effective way of diagnosing hypertension. Updated recommendations on drug treatment are also included.
