GPES CVDPREVENT Audit Data Collection

CVDPREVENT (Cardio Vascular Disease Prevention) is a national primary care audit to support professionally led quality improvement in the diagnosis and management of six high-risk conditions that cause stroke, heart attack and dementia: atrial fibrillation, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, non-diabetic hyperglycaemia and chronic kidney disease.

The General Practice Extraction Service (GPES) will require an initial full year extract of data and thereafter an extract on a quarterly basis.

NHS Digital has issued a Transparency Notice for CVDPREVENT data collection.
