    • Stable angina

      This quality standard defines clinical best practice within this topic area. It provides specific, concise quality statements, measures and audience descriptors to provide the public, health and social care professionals, commissioners and service providers with definitions of high-quality care.

      This quality standard covers care of adults (18 years and older) presenting with stable chest pain or those diagnosed with stable angina due to atherosclerotic disease. It does not cover people with acute coronary syndrome, chest pain or discomfort of unknown cause, angina-type pain that is likely to be due to non-cardiac disease or angina-type pain associated with other types of heart disease. It addresses the diagnosis of stable angina, medical management, revascularisation and re-evaluation of refractory symptoms.
