EVIDENCE is a new way of comparing the safety and effectiveness of two very similar medications that are commonly used for high blood pressure. It works by assigning GP practices to follow a prescribing policy. Doctors in participating practices use the assigned policy to guide their prescribing choices and, where clinically appropriate, patients have their regular medications altered in-line with the policy. Routinely collected NHS data will be used to compare the safety and effectiveness of the medications so that, in future, doctors and patients have all the information they need to make the best treatment choices.
If you would like to know more about the EVIDENCE study, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the EVIDENCE team on 0800 9173509.
