HEART UK NHS HEALTH CHECK & CVD AWARDSDate to be scheduled for 2017
HEART UK, The Cholesterol Charity, established the NHS Health Check Awards to recognise the exceptional service delivery for patients by organisations to achieve positive health outcomes. A tremendous number of people and organisations have been working hard to make the NHS Health Check Programme a success. This is what the Awards celebrate.
This year’s categories celebrate the success stories, shared excellence and practice in providing NHS Health Checks. Awards are open to any provider including GP surgeries and community pharmacies.
The Awards will be held at a ceremony during the Primary Care Cardiovascular Journal Annual Conference in November, celebrating successes in providing NHS Health Checks.
Millions of people are now receiving an NHS Health Check each year. The Awards showed how beneficial it is for teams to work together to drive uptake of the programme and increase follow-up. This helps us work towards our main aim of reducing the number of preventable diseases and deaths which are caused by high cholesterol and other cardiovascular risks factors.
