    Abstract

    A shared hospital-GP record for control of hypertension was studied in a sample of 60 patients. Over 80% of patients brought the record to hospital duly completed. Two-thirds of GPs, and the hospital staff, assessed the record as a useful aid in the care of hypertensives. It is still employed enthusiastically, three years after its introduction.
