Cardiovascular disease profiles

This tool presents an overview of data on cardiovascular and cardiovascular related conditions of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease. The profiles are for commissioners and health professionals when assessing the impact of cardiovascular disease on their local population and making decisions about services. They include data on mortality, hospital admissions, procedures and disease management.

Narrative profile reports are available for each clinical commissioning group (CCG) in England. To download these for a specific CCG click on the links below:

The profiles are created and maintained by the National Cardiovascular Intelligence Network (NCVIN).

Exact dates for updates to the profiles will be announced on the www.gov.uk statistical release calendar

Removal of the Healthier Lives profiles
