Full guideline – August 2011

In August 2019 we updated and replaced this guideline with NICE guideline NG136 on hypertension in adults: diagnosis and management.

NICE's original guidance on hypertension in adults was published in 2004. It was subsequently
updated in 2006, 2011 and 2019.

This document preserves evidence reviews and committee discussions for the 2011 guideline.
