Guidelines

The local Lothian Hypertension and Lipid Guidelines are available on this site. These serve as a guide to the management of these problems in the primary care setting. They do not cover more complex problems, for which a specialist opinion may be helpful. The Hypertension guidelines were published in 2013, and remain current. The Lipid guidelines were updated in 2015.
