Scottish Government's consultation on the 'Heart disease: action plan'

Published: 02 Mar 2021 in

Heart disease remains Scotland’s single biggest killer and constitutes the country’s single biggest health burden. Current actions on heart disease are set out in the Heart Disease Improvement Plan (2014) which was a refresh of the Better Heart Disease and Stroke Care Action Plan (2009).
