 Introduction

​The Cardiovascular Disease Clinical Reference Group meets every two months to improve services for people with, or at risk of developing cardiovascular disease in Wandsworth.

The group is made up of professionals from Wandsworth Council, local organisations, clinical networks, etc.

In the coming year we are focussing on on the following areas:

Cardiac Care

Cardiac rehabilitation is one of the most evidence based interventions in the management of long term conditions. We have increased investment in local services so that more people are offered cardiac rehabilitation.

Heart Failure

We are working to increase the investment in the Community Heart Failure Specialist Nursing Team so they can run a rapid response service and help patients to mange their condition long term.

Chronic Kidney Disease

We are working with GP practices in Wandsworth to find and treat people with chronic kidney disease as currently we have less than expected numbers on our disease registers.

Peripheral Vascular Disease

People with peripheral vascular disease can benefit from a supervised exercise programme according to NICE guidelines and we are one of the first CCGs to commission such a service.
