The 5 year forward view has highlighted the importance of co-ordinated action in the prevention of disease. It sets a clear direction on prioritising prevention in order to reduce the development of Long Term Conditions including Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) and the NHS has a crucial role in the delivery of this agenda particularly at an individual patient level.
The Yorkshire & Humber CVD Prevention work programme underpins the existing four areas of the CVD Network (Cardiac, Stroke, Renal & Diabetes) and has appointed three GP Advisors to support the prevention areas identified within each of the CVD areas as well as being key in the support and delivery if the key priorities for 2015/16.
In order to support CCGs in the delivery of their role as commissioners, the Y&H Clinical Networks key area for delivery in 2015/16 is to produce a CVD Prevention Strategy which assesses the national evidence on effective interventions for the prevention of CVD. The Strategy will identify key areas for attention and focus on opportunities that will enable the delivery of improved outcomes.
