Gateshead are working on a British Heart Foundation (BHF) project to change how long term conditions, particularly cardiovascular disease (CVD), are managed. The project is called the BHF House of Care Project. The House of Care refers to the system changes that are needed to deliver this new way of working.
The focus of the project is to improve identification and prevention of CVD and implement a new approach to the management of long term conditions – the Year of Care Approach. The aim of this approach is to enable patients with CVD and their carers to be engaged, informed and empowered to better care for themselves, and enable health professionals and voluntary sector to support self-care.
