Programme overview

The National Audit of Cardiovascular Disease Prevention in Primary Care (CVDPrevent) Workstream 3 is being carried out by the NHS Benchmarking Network. HQIP commissioned this workstream on behalf of NHS England in 2020 to support professionally-led quality improvement in primary care for the prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in England.

The CVDPREVENT audit is part of a broader strategic objective outlined in the Long Term Plan to prevent 150,000 strokes, heart attacks and cases of dementia over the next ten years. Workstream 3 will prioritise working with system partners to drive CVD quality improvement at individual GP, PCN, CCG and STP/ICS level.

Workstream 3 covers presentation of data in a meaningful way to:

  • identify gaps, inequalities, and opportunities in care
  • spotlight areas for improvement to drive better outcomes and reduce health inequalities
  • support national and local CVD prevention programmes.

More information can be found via the quick guide to CVDPREVENT.

Additional information on all HQIP-commissioned projects is available on the NHS Trusts page, which includes the recommendations repository, infographics compendium, 9 month publication schedule, impact report, and National Clinical Audit and Enquiries Directory.
