NHS Health Checks Cholesterol measurement requirements
From April 2014, the NHS Health Checks specification requires providers to measure the Total Cholesterol/HDL (TC/HDL) ratio in order that patients receive their correct QRISK score.
Providers need to ensure that Total Cholesterol/HDL cassettes are used when measuring cholesterol with point of care testing devices such as the LDx or Cardiochek.
