Cardiovascular disease profiles for England - Third release

These cardiovascular disease (CVD) profiles provide a snapshot of key issues relating to heart disease and stroke, including prevention, incidence, mortality, risk factors and treatments. These profiles have been designed to help health and well-being boards and local health services to assess the impact of these elements of cardiovascular disease on their local populations and the services provided to meet those needs. They are intended to inform commissioning and planning decisions to tackle CVD and improve the health of local communities. As such, they support the Public Health Outcomes Framework and the CVD Outcomes Strategy of 2013. They are available at local authority level, so the profiles are aligned to health and well-being board areas in England. There are also summary profiles for every Strategic Clinical Network in England. The profiles have three elements:

There is also a background technical document outlining the measures used, and the data behind them, in more detail. There is also a document of frequently asked questions that helps explain why they were developed and some of the data issues. There are a range of other profiles produced by Public Health England, which present data of specific relevance to CVD, including risk factors and co-morbidities. These include the Tobacco Control Profiles, Kidney Disease Profiles and the Diabetes Community Health Profiles.
