Innovation in care
Best practice examples, case studies and resources in cardiovascular disease to help NHS commissioners, clinicians and providers design innovative services.
Our series, The CVD Challenge, describes how we can tackle high-risk conditions to save lives and reduce NHS pressures in each of the four UK nations, working with partners in government, the NHS and the third sector.
Around 7 million people in the UK live with the burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Millions more have undetected medical risk factors.
CVD remains one of the biggest causes of death and disability in the UK, costing health services billions of pounds each year.
Despite significant successes in reducing CVD mortality, it remains a major contributor to premature death and health inequality.
Working with health system leaders and governments, together we can tackle undetected hypertension, atrial fibrillation and high cholesterol, to reduce the impact of stroke and heart attack.
We can improve the quality of care for patients with diagnosed conditions to reduce their risk. Improve patient outcomes by delivering innovative services.
Together, let us change tomorrow.
