West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership and Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network: West Yorkshire and Harrogate Healthy Hearts Project

The West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership commissioned Yorkshire and Humber AHSN to deliver a Healthy Hearts project on behalf of the nine local Clinical Commissioning Groups.

This is a large-scale quality improvement project, across a population of 2.6 million people.

The aim is to reduce the number of people affected by CVD by 10 per cent, consisting of an estimated reduction of 800 heart attacks and 350 strokes over the course of the project by addressing the risk factors of hypertension, cholesterol and diabetes.
