West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health Hearts Project


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.

The project is focusing on three areas: high blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes which means community pharmacies may see more patients who require new medication or changes to their existing medication.

A range of resources have been created in collaboration with Public Health England and the British Heart Foundation. In particular, top tips for community pharmacy and action you can take, a patient leaflet on how to look after your heart combining all the public health messages and sources of support into one leaflet, including an easy read version.

 

The healthy hearts website where both community pharmacy and your patients can find more information and keep up to date about the project and resources.  Information includes:

Hypertension Treatment Guidance

Healthy living leaflet

Statin intolerance guidance

GP referral letter BP (NMS)  patient letter
