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.

Hypertension Treatment Guidance

Healthy living leaflet
