Healthcare Improvement Scotland [HIS] Heart Disease Improvement Programme was set up in 2007. It aims to drive and support continuous improvements in care for older people in Scotland with heart disease. The programme supports implementation of evidence and measurement of the effectiveness of this.

NHS Scotland Boards were asked to provide evidence [self assessment] that they were currently meeting the standards or were developing systems of improvement that would lead to the standards being met within a locally defined timescale. The evidence was then evaluated by multidisciplinary panels, including patient and public representatives and health care professionals, to assess performance against heart disease standards.

NHS Fife were ranked 2nd top in the National Overview Leauge Table of Results. Each Board obtained scores for each heart disease standard relative to their deviation from the Scottish Average Result and the total score assigned was the sum of the results from all the standards tested.
