Innovation for Healthcare Inequalities Programme (InHIP): Cardiovascular Disease Prevention

The InHIP Cardiovascular Disease Prevention project is a pilot of a pharmacist-led community lipid management hub in Bexley, targeting those patients with existing cardiovascular disease not currently treated to target, with a specific focus on the CORE20 and PLUS populations in NHS England’s Core20PLUS5 framework.

Project overview

This project will help address healthcare inequalities within SEL, focussing on Bexley borough, ensuring populations in Bexley have improved access to lipid management medicines optimisation and lifestyle interventions to reduce cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. Bexley comprises four primary care networks, all of which serve populations of high deprivation, stark health inequalities and high need in terms of CVD risk.

The project will pilot a pharmacist-led community lipid management hub initially in Clocktower PCN  Bexley, ensuring benefits to patients in Core20PLUS populations, to minimise their risk of myocardial infarction and stroke.  A multi-disciplinary PCN-based approach for this pilot will encourage links to all Bexley practices, community pharmacies and acute Trust specialists.
