Clinical Effectiveness South East London (CESEL) provide a systematic evidence-based approach to quality improvement across south east London general practice, to help to improve health outcomes and reduce variation and inequalities for our local population.
As a collaborative endeavour across CCG and PCNs clinical effectiveness will also enhance a population health capability, ensuring front line staff have the tools and resources to provide best-practice care.

Title: Community Pharmacy Blood Pressure Check Service (update June 2022)
CESEL is working with colleagues to support the roll out of the Community Pharmacy Blood Pressure Check Service.
People can now have a blood pressure check in pharmacies across SEL. The service is available to anyone aged over the age of 40, with or without a confirmed diagnosis of high blood pressure, and can also be offered to under 40’s if the pharmacist thinks it is needed. GP teams are also able to refer to the community pharmacy for blood pressure checks and ambulatory blood pressure readings.
See the Community Pharmacy Blood pressure check service page for more details and the list of participating pharmacists in your area, which maps pharmacist participation.
