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
Other CVD data and intelligence resources
Hypertension Prevalence and Management - October 2020 Update
Updated hypertension prevalence and management information to reflect changes in the 2019/20 Quality and Outcomes Framework, by CCG, STP and England.
Cardiovascular disease prevention packs
These packs are available for STPs and CCGs and show opportunities in CVD prevention.
NCVIN collates and produces other intelligence resources to help health professionals to make or influence decisions about local services. These resources can be found here.
Updated data from Sentinel Stroke National Audit programme for 2020/21.
Correction: An error in the percentage of stroke admissions with history of atrial fibrillation not prescribed anticoagulation was identified in the December 2021 update of the CVD Profiles. An import error led to a reversal of the percentage display of the anticoagulation indicator. The impact was for all geographies where the indicator was available. The data has now been corrected and replaced on Fingertips at the 1st March 2022.
New data from the 2020/21 Quality Outcomes Framework has been included in all profiles. Please see caveats in the metadata on its use. Mortality data in heart disease and stroke updated is to 2020 for single years only. Treatment care and services provision data updated for heart, stroke and kidney disease. Treatment and care data from the National Diabetes Audit updated to 2019/20.
The CVD prevention data packs are now available for STPs and CCGs.

Removal of the Healthier Lives profiles
On December 4th 2018 the 'Healthier Lives' resource for hypertension was removed and this web address redirected to the CVD profiles. This decision was taken to reduce the significant level of duplication that existed between Healthier Lives and existing profiles, but with less functionality available for users in the former.
An additional page has been added to the diabetes narrative report. The page contains analysis regarding the achievement of care process targets, taken from the most recent National Diabetes Audit publication. Corresponding data also made available online
