Prevention of cardiovascular disease: consultation on the draft guidance

We are consulting on the draft guidance ‘prevention of cardiovascular disease at the population level’. In particular, we would be interested in the views of stakeholders on recommendations 3, 4 and 5 (on salt, saturated fats and trans fats). We would be interested in views on:

  • Whether a figure for a lower target for salt intake could or should be identified at this stage
  • Whether an even lower saturated fat intake is achievable
  • The potential impact of a ban on industrial trans fats on cardiovascular disease in general and particularly the potential effects on existing inequalities in health.

We also welcome comments about other recommendations and sections of the guidance

The consultation will take place between 14 October – 16 November 2009.

Please provide all responses to this draft guidance using the Stakeholder Comments Form (ensuring all relevant fields are completed, including your organisation's full name) and forward this by 5pm on Monday 16 November at the very latest to: cardiovascular@nice.org.uk
