The British Heart Foundation (BHF) funded and evaluated a 2- year project at 9 NHS organisations across the UK. This case study is based on the East Cheshire project. Within the context of

a growing elderly population and better survival of people with CVD conditions, this project aimed to support patients to remain in the community for as long as is clinically possible, avoid hospital admissions and reduce length of stay.
