This quality standard covers diagnosing and managing stable angina in adults (aged 18 and over). It describes high-quality care in priority areas for improvement.

In January 2017, changes were made to statement 1 on diagnostic investigation to reflect the updated NICE guideline on chest pain of recent onset.
