Top service innovation resources
The BHF is committed to finding new and innovative ways of delivering and supporting the best possible care for patients with cardiovascular disease.
We want to ensure the best evidence-based services are put into practice, and we want to help healthcare professionals and commissioners all over the UK to do the same. That's why we have organised several pilot programmes with the NHS directly relevant to caring for patients with cardiovascular disease and high-risk conditions.
Our Events page lists upcoming professional events and conferences in cardiovascular disease prevention, diagnosis and management at which the BHF is planning to attend or present.
Featured resources for your patients
Featured resource: Understanding Risk series
We've designed a new, streamlined collection of leaflets and booklets focused on living a healthier lifestyle. Our new Understanding Risk series covers main risk factors of heart and circulatory diseases. We explain to your patients what these are, how these happen and how these can lead to heart attack or stroke.
Featured resource: Taking Control series
These leaflets explain the link between certain lifestyle choices and circulatory disease i.e. explaining how a diet high in salt can lead to a stroke. They also provide top tips for simple, small changes you can make to help keep your heart healthy.
