Size of the Prize: reducing heart attacks and strokes

New PHE analysis suggests that there is now an opportunity to prevent more than 9,000 heart attacks and at least 14,000 strokes over the next three years with better detection and management of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and atrial fibrillation.

Sir Bruce Keogh, the National Medical Director of NHS England, said that closer working between NHS organisations and local authorities will "create new opportunities to get serious about prevention and bear down on two of the biggest killers, between them responsible for one in four premature deaths".

Speaking at the NHS Expo conference in Manchester, Sir Bruce urged the new sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs) to take coordinated action to improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment of these life-threatening conditions. The new analysis has been undertaken by PHE.
