Good news for thousands
The NHS, working with Public Health England (PHE), have announced a new drive to prevent heart attacks & strokes saving thousands of lives by taking a more integrated approach to cardiovascular care.  New PHE analysis suggests that there is now an opportunity to prevent more than 9,000 heart attacks and at least 14,000 strokes over the next 3 years with better detection & management of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and atrial fibrillation.
