There is a huge opportunity to improve CVD outcomes as the majority of CVD cases are preventable.

Why focus on Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease?

Poor cardiovascular health can cause heart attacks, strokes, heart failure, chronic kidney disease, peripheral arterial disease and the onset of vascular dementia. It disproportionately affects people from the poorest communities.

Considerable coordinated efforts are required to address the major challenges that CVD continues to play in individual lives and communities across Cheshire and Merseyside.
