Together we can beat heart disease
The West Yorkshire and Harrogate Healthy Hearts project aims to help reduce the impact of cardiovascular disease and save lives in our region by helping to prevent people from having a heart attack or stroke.
The project is delivered by the Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network working in partnership with the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership and the local NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups in Leeds, Wakefield, Harrogate and District, North Kirklees, Greater Huddersfield, Bradford City and Districts, Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven.
Our project aims:
- to contribute to the reduction in the number of cardiovascular events such as heart attacks and strokes in our area by over 10% by 2021
- 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 pounds
