As part of the 2019-2024 Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework, it was agreed that a model for detecting undiagnosed cardiovascular disease (CVD) in community pharmacy would be piloted in 2020/21 through NHS England and NHS Improvement’s Pharmacy Integration Fund.

The hypertension case-finding pilot commenced in December 2020 across several primary care networks. These pilots have informed the service specification for the NHS Community Pharmacy Blood Pressure Check Service. The service supports risk identification and prevention of CVD.
