BHF Prevention & Care Stephanie Dilnot BHF Area Development Manager Yorkshire & Humberside

Why Rotherham? – Cardiovascular diseases are a leading cause of death in Rotherham. The combination of IHD, cerebrovascular disease, heart failure, complications and ill-defined heart disease cause 29.4% of all male and 28.9% of all female deaths in the borough. – Early death rates from heart disease and stroke, whilst falling, are still higher than the England average. – Rotherham is worse than the England average for lifestyle factors that contribute to poor cardiovascular health (smoking rates, obesity, population who are physical active and eat healthily).
