UK NSC screening recommendation Based on the last UK NSC review of this condition that occurred in January 2007.

Screening is not currently recommended for this condition.

Although the UK NSC does not recommend screening for cardiovascular risk, it identified the need for a cardiovascular risk assessment programme. This became the NHS Health Check.

The UK NSC continues to make recommendations for specific cardiovascular health problems that affect older people.
