Mortality rates from cardiovascular disease
continue to fall, but CVD stills causes more than one in four
deaths in the UK. Of the 161,250 CVD deaths in 2012, 73,600 were
caused by coronary heart disease and 41,300 were caused by
stroke.There is still much to do to reduce these rates further and
prevent unnecessary suffering.
There is still so much more to do to reduce these rates further
and prevent unnecessary suffering.
Over one million clinical practitioners work in the NHS, with
thousands more in the independent sector and in health education
and health promotion in the community: we appreciate the crucial
role you play in realising our vision of a world where people no
longer die prematurely from cardiovascular disease.
