Targeted CVD prevention initiatives directly reduce health inequalities and are highly cost effective in preventing cardiovascular events. The Oxford AHSN CVD prevention programme is aligned to the NHS Long Term Plan ambitions, AHSN Network national programmes and regional priorities. Our focus is on improved detection and management of three significant risk factors – atrial fibrillation, hypertension and high cholesterol.
With GIRFT and other partners, the Oxford AHSN produced guidance to overcome disruption to CVD prevention services caused by the pandemic. Download the guidance here. Similar guidance was also produced for stroke services. Find out more here.
