British Women's Heart and Health Study

The British Women's Heart and Health Study is a prospective cohort study of heart disease in over 4000 British women between the ages of 60 and 79. It is funded by the Department of Health and the British Heart Foundation. The Study aims to provide information about existing patterns of treatment of heart disease, and further the understanding of risk factors and disease prevention. We collected our baseline data in 1999-2001, and have been tracking the cohort since. We have commenced the fourth phase of the study in 2010 and an outline of the study is given below:
