The North West has one of the greatest burdens of Cardiovascular Disease - CVD - in the country. The focus of the CVD Network has been to both help promote CVD prevention strategies and, where CVD is present, to help improve outcomes. We have approached this by engaging and working collaboratively with a wide range of health and care providers, commissioners, public health, local authorities, voluntary organisations and patient, carer and public involvement. Indeed, whilst the ‘Network Team’ help to support this work, the ‘CVD Network’ could be said to be comprised of this wider group of stakeholders working in collaboration towards the Network goal; that the “the health and wellbeing of local people, and the care they receive, will be comparable with the best in the world”
