Search and risk stratification tools

Search and risk stratification tools

We have developed and defined search and stratification tools to help primary care teams prioritise care appropriately for people with CVD and respiratory long-term conditions.  These tools can be adapted to meet local preference if required.  The tools stratify patients into low , medium , and high-risk of deterioration.

The tools have been developed by our clinical team, working with the Clinical Effectiveness Group based at Queen Mary University of London. The search criteria draw on national guidance.

To access these tools, please complete the form below.

How to run the search
