In a nutshell: This toolkit is intended to assist commissioners and service providers with implementation of the NICE FH guideline 71 (2008). The prevalence of FH, which greatly increases risk of death from premature heart disease, is thought to be at a level equivalent to type 1 diabetes in the population. Up to 85% of patients with the condition have not yet been identified or treated. The toolkit mainly covers developing services, diagnosing patients and rolling out cascade testing.
