Introduction

The cardiovascular disease and diabetes profiles bring together data on the pathway of care and the outcomes for CVD and diabetes, including primary care management of the conditions and their risks, emergency care, hospital admission, acute care procedures and mortality. These profiles are designed for commissioners, public health directors and others involved in the local planning and provision of services and interventions that support people with cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes conditions.

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a general term for conditions affecting the heart or blood vessels. CVD is one of the main causes of death and disability in England, but a healthy lifestyle can largely prevent these outcomes.

Diabetes is a key risk condition in developing CVD. The diabetes profile provide a detailed view of diabetes measures with a summary of diabetes measures contained within the CVD Profile, as having diabetes is a key risk factor for developing CVD.
