Why it matters: Various angiotensin-II receptor blockers (ARBs) are available. A number of them are now available generically, and are of low cost. NICE guidance for treating high blood pressure recommends that the low-cost versions should be used.
Description: Prescribing of high-cost ARBs as a percentage of prescribing of all ARBs. See the full list of BNF codes used in this measure.
CCGs are ordered by mean percentile over the past six months. Each chart shows the results for the individual CCG, plus deciles across all CCGs in the NHS in England.
