Heart Disease Statistics Update
Welcome to our Heart Disease & Stroke web pages.This section provides information on heart disease including coronary heart disease (CHD).
We have released our latest publication in January 2016. A summary of the latest publication is also available and detailed tables of information are accessible for different Topic Areas such as deprivation, hospital activity, prescribing, incidence, survival, mortality, primary care and ambulance service activity.
Although the same team deals with coronary heart disease and stroke information, the two conditions are separated on ISD's web site to highlight the distinction between the two in terms of their epidemiology and service provision.
We have also traditionally included information on other forms of cardiovascular disease and this is a reflection of the broader remit of the Scottish Government's 2009 strategy Better Heart Disease & Stroke Care Action Plan and the 2014 Heart Disease Improvement Plan .
The heart disease and stroke publications were released on 26th January 2016. As part of the publication there is an option to rate the publication and provide comments. ISD will review any comments that are received folowing the publication and, if appropriate, take account of these for any future publication.
ISD would welcome any further comments and suggestions on the heart disease and stroke publications. If you wish to contact ISD about these publications, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
