In a nutshell: The January 28th issue of the BMJ presents both sides of the controversy over the current hypertension guidance. The 2011 NICE guidelines for the management of hypertension are facing criticism for being too complicated and having an insufficient evidence base. The authors of the NICE guidelines have responded to the criticism, citing that their recommendations are evidence-based, but that the guidelines will evolve as more evidence is found. All sides agree that further robust research needs to be done.
