How to collaborate with our Cardiovascular Programme
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a leading cause of death and disability globally, nationally and within our region.
In the UK, there are around 7 million people are living with CVD. It causes more than 150,000 deaths each year.
Healthcare costs relating to heart and circulatory diseases are estimated at £9 billion each year.
Stroke, a preventable disease, is the fourth single leading cause of death in the UK. In Liverpool CVD accounts for a fifth of all premature deaths.
To address this, the Liverpool Centre for Cardiovascular Science (LCCS) has been formed.
