UK (United Kingdom)
Heart and circulatory disease, also known as cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the cause of a quarter of all UK deaths and largest cause of premature mortality in deprived areas. Early detection and treatment, combined with a focus on prevention, is a key priority in the NHS Long-term plan, identified as the single biggest area where the NHS can save lives over the next 10 years, with the potential to prevent up to 150,000 heart attacks, strokes and dementia cases.
