Together we can beat heart disease
Have you been told you are at risk of developing cardiovascular disease? Then you are in the right place if you want to learn more about what this means and what you can do to improve your health. We are working with GPs and other health and care professionals across West Yorkshire and Harrogate to help reduce the impact of cardiovascular disease. Together we are supporting the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Healthy Hearts initiative to save lives by helping to prevent people from having a heart attack or stroke.
The project is delivered by Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network (Yorkshire & Humber AHSN) working in partnership with West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership and local NHS organisations in Leeds, Wakefield, Harrogate and district, North Kirklees, Greater Huddersfield, Bradford district and Craven.
Our initiative aims:
- to contribute to reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease including heart attacks and strokes in our area by over 10%
- to help prevent 800 heart attacks and 350 strokes over the course of the programme
- to save the local health economy more than £12 million
