Cardiovascular disease (CVD) causes a quarter of all deaths in the UK and is the largest cause of premature mortality in deprived areas. The NHS long term plan identifies this as the biggest area where the NHS can save lives over the next 10 years.
What do national plans and local work look like now, in the context of COVID-19?
The HSJ Cardio Virtual Forum will bring together national and local leaders, senior managers, clinicians, industry and the third sector to support you to achieve sustainable improvement to cardiovascular disease care and prevention.
Together, we will assess the impact of the pandemic on cardiac and stroke services, examine innovations and adaptations that have worked well and learn how to take these innovations forward to improve prevention and care in the long term.
