Ten years ago, England had one of the worst death rates from circulatory diseases in Europe. Today, thanks to the expertise and hard work of thousands of NHS staff, major progress has been made in implementing the National Service Framework (NSF) for Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), and deaths from circulatory diseases are set to be reduced by 40%, three years ahead of the 10-year target set when the NSF was published in March 2000. As a result, we estimate that around 100,000 lives are being saved each year.
