The ASSIGN Score (Version 1.5.1)
ASSIGN is a cardiovascular risk score developed in Dundee University, Scotland in 2006.
ASSIGN includes social deprivation for the first time, and family history of cardiovascular disease, with the classic risk factors.
It identifies people free of cardiovascular disease most likely to develop it over ten years. ‘High risk’ (score 20 or more) implies risk-lowering medication and/or other medical help.
ASSIGN is the cardiovascular risk score chosen for use by SIGN (Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network) and Scottish Government Health Directorates.
ASSIGN can be adapted for use outside Scotland.
This website provides ASSIGN scoring for the Scottish National Health Service.
It also introduces, calculates, and explains ASSIGN scores to interested citizens and medical scientists, whoever and wherever they are.
We welcome feedback from users in both groups.
