ACHIEVING THE NATIONAL CVD PREVENTION AMBITIONS 

Improving detection and management of AF, high BP and high cholesterol 

NATIONAL AMBITIONS

Too many people are still living with undetected and poorly managed atrial fibrillation (AF), high blood pressure (BP) and raised cholesterol. In 2019 Public Health England (PHE) and NHS England agreed national ambitions to address the A, B and C of secondary CVD prevention and to reduce associated health inequalities over 10 years.

The   'ABC’ of secondary CVD prevention: 
- Atrial fibrillation
- High Blood pressure
- High Cholesterol

CVD PREVENT AUDIT

'CVD PREVENT' is a new national primary care audit that will automatically extract routinely held GP data. PCN-level data will support systematic quality improvement to reduce health inequalities and improve outcomes related to CVD risk factors such as AF, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Read the quick guide to CVD prevent here.

NHS HEALTH CHECKS

NHS Health Checks are a systematic opportunity to identify and address CVD risk factors (including the 'ABC' conditions) early. Visit the NHS Health Checks homepage for commissioner and provider support, webinars and more.

NICE

An outline of how NICE evidence-based guidance can contribute to improvements in CVD prevention are outlined here.
