Information on heart disease is also published elsewhere on ISD's web site.

You may find the following of interest:

General Practice - Quality & Outcomes Framework (QOF)

QOF includes disease registers for a variety of CHD related conditions e.g. heart failure, atrial fibrillation, and this information may be used, for example, to estimate the prevalence of coronary heart disease diagnoses.


The Heart Disease & Stroke Programme also publishes analogous information, including deprivation, hospitalisations and mortality, on patients with cerebrovascular disease, including stroke.

Scottish Stroke Care Audit (SSCA)

This is a national audit within the Quality Improvement programme at ISD and checks the quality of stroke care delivered in all hospitals in Scotland managing acute stroke. The SSCA publishes a report on the audit findings annually, the most recent being the 2015 National Report: Stroke Services in Scottish Hospitals.

Hospital Care

There are 2 tables in this section which include data on heart disease and stroke.

1. Diagnosis table - no. of episodes and incidences per year over the last 5 years with corresponding rates per population, for a wide range of diagnoses, including IHD (CHD), AMI (heart attack), angina, heart failure, CVD. This is broken down by health board, 5 year age band and sex.
