Abstract

This paper examines the approach taken to health promotion and disease prevention in primary care in the UK, using coronary heart disease prevention (CHD) as an illustration. The paper considers the approach taken by the UK's government, the level of involvement of general practitioners (GP) and community nurses in CHD prevention, the factors that influence variation in involvement and the evidence for effectiveness.
