CEG's work with the NHS in North East London is featured as a case study in a new report by The King’s Fund: Cardiovascular disease in England: Supporting leaders to take actions. The report calls for “urgent action by government, national and local leaders to tackle the large and unequal burden of disease and mortality associated with cardiovascular disease - much of which is potentially preventable through timely, evidence-based public health measures and health care.”
In case study 4 (p48) the authors describe CEG’s ‘Clinical Effectiveness’ approach as: Making it easier for GPs to do the right thing using digital decision-support and review tools; providing actionable insight and tailored local data analysis; motivating teams; innovation; and measuring equity. The case study notes that North East London was the highest-performing sustainability and transformation partnership (STP) nationally on the 2019/20 Quality and Outcomes Framework, with some of the highest rates of statin usage and blood pressure control in people with ischaemic heart disease, stroke, hypertension and diabetes. This is despite the region having some of the most ethnically diverse and deprived populations in England, with a high prevalence of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
