Across the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership (WYHHCP) there is an ambition to reduce the number of CVD incidents by 10% by 2021, through a project known as Healthy Hearts. This project is being led by the West Yorkshire Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) on behalf of WYHHCP.
