Cardiovascular disease outcomes strategy survey
We are looking for responses to an informal survey into ideas for the Governments new Cardiovascular Disease Outcomes Strategy..
Cardiovascular disease (CVD)
is the biggest cause of death in England and stroke is the biggest cause of
While great progress has been made in terms of mortality reductions
in recent years, demographic changes such as an aging population and the
increase in obesity mean that these gains may be lost without further action.
This is why the Secretary of State for Health announced in December 2011 that a
new CVD outcomes strategy would be developed.
This will set out what needs to be
done to deliver improved outcomes for CVD from prevention, through to
diagnosis and treatment, long-term support and end-of-life care.
focus will be on conditions causing or resulting from atheromatous disease of
the arteries. A range of other conditions will also be considered, such as
arrhythmias and heart failure.
Given there is no new funding available for the strategy, we are also considering how we can use existing resources better to deliver the changes we need.
We have been consulting
widely with patients, carers, health professionals and a range of representative
organisations on where the problems lie and what the strategy should focus on.
This is your opportunity to contribute to this consultation process and to give us your ideas of how to improve cardiovascular disease outcomes. We welcome collective responses from organisations.
You can either complete the survey online, or if this is not possible, you can post your responses to the address given on the survey.
The survey is due to close on 28 September.
