Our reviewers are people who have high blood pressure. They help us to make sure that our information is clear and readable. Our advisers are professionals with an interest in blood pressure. They help us be sure that our information is accurate and up to date. This section explains a little more about what each group does.
Our reviewers are people who have high blood pressure. It is very important to us that people with a range of backgrounds review our information. This means that we get a range of useful perspectives.
Our reviewers have two main roles. First, they check that our information is clear and readable. We try as much as we can to write in plain English, but we don’t always get it right first time.
Their second role is to ensure that what we write is relevant to their own experiences. That is, they help us to make information that is useful to people. Sometimes we will ask reviewers to write about their own lives with high blood pressure. This adds a different perspective to the information, which can be very helpful.
Our advisers are doctors and health professionals who have an interest in blood pressure. Our advisers check all of our information to ensure that it is accurate and up to date. They also advise us of useful research or references that we should read.
Our advisers inform us of any developments in blood pressure management. They keep us up to date on changes in the National Health Service and in health care more widely. This helps us to develop our policy, and to understand blood pressure management from all perspectives.
Advisers also help us with enquiries that come to our information line or email service.

- Professor Gareth Beevers, Professor of Medicine
