Back NICE impact cardiovascular disease management
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the most common causes of death in England. It's associated with health inequalities, with higher premature death rates in more deprived areas. This report highlights progress made by the health and care system in implementing NICE guidance on CVD management.
Most of the data are on the impact of NICE guidance before COVID-19, but the report includes some data collected during the pandemic. It highlights some of the different ways care has been delivered; for example, the availability of remote cardiac rehabilitation programmes has increased.
