Welcome to the new home of Guidelines in Practice

For Primary Care

Join Dr Raj Thakkar and the PCCS at Guidelines Live 2023

The Primary Care Cardiovascular Society (PCCS) is excited to be back at Guidelines Live in 2023! This year, the PCCS will be focusing on multimorbidity, with presentations from its past, current, and future presidents. 

The NHS long term plan states that cardiovascular disease is the single biggest area in which the NHS can save lives over the next 10 years.1 The PCCS aims to help you to deliver real change in primary care, and to improve cardiovascular outcomes across your local population. The presentations at Guidelines Live 2023 will be practical, discuss the latest evidence, explain how to manage complex patients, and help you to maximise Quality and Outcomes Framework performance.

Topics will include recent developments in the management of heart failure (HF), such as how to initiate early quadruple therapy for HF with reduced ejection fraction, and the latest NICE guidance on HF with preserved ejection fraction.2 Other presentations by speakers from the PCCS will cover:

  • the cardiovascular implications of chronic kidney disease, incorporating organ crosstalk, premature valve disease, and accelerated atherosclerosis
  • management of the multimorbid cardio–renal–metabolic patient
  • how to maximise lipid lowering in high-risk patients using polypharmacy.

Each presentation will offer tips and ideas to take back to your practice. The PCCS will also host a panel session to discuss difficult cases in primary care. We look forward to seeing you at these sessions.
