Consultation on the draft document 'Together for health - a cardiac delivery plan' - a delivery plan up to 2016 for NHS and its partners9 Aug 2012
The Welsh Government’s draft delivery plan sets out its vision for the population of Wales and what this means for NHS cardiac disease services.
One of the main outcomes that the plan looks to achieve is for people to be placed at the centre of cardiac care with their individual needs identified and met so they feel well supported and informed, and able to manage the effects of cardiac disease.
Cardiac disease is the largest cause of death amongst the population of Wales. Figures published in 2008 have shown that out of 32,000 deaths in Wales, almost 11,000 have been due to cardiac disease.
