Cardiovascular Disease

Making a difference in cardiovascular care

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) covers a range of conditions affecting the heart and circulatory system. These include coronary heart disease, angina, heart attack and stroke.

Each year in the UK, approximately 300,000 people experience a heart attack. Angina affects about one in 50 people with an estimated 1.2 million sufferers in the UK (Source:NHS Choices). Together, cardiovascular diseases are the most common cause of death in the UK (Source:British Heart Foundation).
