“This Public Health England initiative should raise peoples’ awareness of their cardiovascular risk, but more than that, I hope it will be an instigator of change in lifestyle.

“As a charity, we are dedicated to ensuring healthcare professionals are equipped with the knowledge and skills required to help people make those changes and support them in managing their risk factors.”

Education for Health has a range of education and training for healthcare professionals including Cardiovascular modules at Levels 5 and 6, and workshops both at basic levels and updates for more experienced staff. Click to find out more.
