Cardiovascular Disease Programme


The vision of the Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Programme is to improve the cardio vascular health of the Cheshire and Merseyside population through a series of targeted, clinically led workstreams that will enhance quality, reduce variation and drive efficiencies in support of the 5YFV.

This will be delivered through seven workstreams:

  • Managing CVD risk factors
  • Extended cardiac rehabilitation
  • Integrated community heart failure services
  • Embedding a new Acute Coronary Syndrome pathway
  • Single digital and diagnostic platform
  • Primary pacing services
  • Stroke sustainability
  • Aortic Dissection pathway

This programme of work will specifically:

  • Achieve a clinically led and financially sustainable cardiovascular service across the Cheshire and Merseyside geography, which will enhance prevention, community support and collaborative working across providers.
  • Implement a whole system single cardiology service embedding national guidance and best practice.
