High blood pressure has been identified as a priority for collaborative action across the sub region. Despite being largely preventable it is very common, affecting more than one in four adults in England. It has a significant impact on the health and life expectancy of the community, and contributes to unsustainable strain on health care and social services.

 

Just as the impacts of high blood pressure are wide-reaching, the solution must extend beyond the health care system. There is much scope to prevent high blood pressure, to empower communities identify and manage it, to support health care services to deliver the best possible care, and for all of these aspects to work in a more joined up way.

 

Over the last year, much work has been undertaken, involving a wide range of partners, to write a sub-regional cross-sector strategy to tackle high blood pressure. The Blood Pressure Partnership Board will include representatives from a range of sectors and organisations, and will oversee the direction and implementation of this strategy.
