CVD resources

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) contributes to a quarter of all deaths in people under the age of 75 and accounts for a quarter of the life expectancy gap between the rich and poor.

The NHS Long Term Plan sets the ambitious target of preventing 150,000 cases of heart attacks, strokes, and dementia over ten years, optimising the detection and management of atrial fibrillation, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Our Proactive Care Frameworks provide a platform for optimising clinical care and self-care for people with these high-risk conditions, supporting primary care teams to do things differently and at scale.

The following slide packs include pathways and resources to support clinicians treating patients with single or multiple cardiovascular conditions.

Size of the Prize

Size of the Prize is a new resource that UCLPartners has developed. For every ICS in England this shows the potential for real ambition in preventing heart attacks and strokes at scale in a short time frame by optimising the management of high blood pressure.


Many patients will have one or more of the CVD conditions. We have therefore created a guide for multi-morbidity and a unified CVD protocol for consultations to support education, self-management and behaviour change.

The videos below go through these frameworks in detail and how to use them.

Digital tools

Here, you can find reliable tools that can be used to support both staff and patients.
