NHS Health Check e-Bulletin - June 2012 edition

Welcome to our fourth online issue

This ebulletin is produced by NHS Diabetes and Kidney Care in conjunction with the Department of Health to support the NHS Health Check Learning Network.   This is a useful tool for anyone working in health or social care with an interest in the prevention of vascular disease and vascular risk assessment and management.  To subscribe or unsubscribe, please contact Eleanor Kent-Dyson. 

Nicola Strother Smith, National Director, NHS Diabetes and Kidney Care

I am delighted to bring you the fourth edition of the NHS Health Check eBulletin, which  forms an essential feature of the NHS Health Check learning network.  In the period leading up to the transition of the NHS Health Check programme to Public Health England and Local Authorities, the network is becoming increasingly important.  It is vital for us to continue to share knowledge and learning with one another and support each other through this period of ongoing change. 

I hope you find the latest edition of our eBulletin useful, and always welcome news and comments from you on ways we can improve this element of the NHS Health Check learning network. 

Best wishes,

Nicola Strother Smith
