High-cost Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitors by all CCGs

Why it matters: All commonly-used ACE inhibitors are now available generically and are low-cost. There is no difference between these generic versions and the more expensive brands, and so it’s important that practices prescribe the most cost-effective version possible.

Description: Prescribing of high-cost ACE inhibitors as a percentage of prescribing of all ACE inhibitors. See the full list of BNF codes used in this measure.
