In a nutshell: Women visiting hospital with CVD has surged by almost 100,000 in just ten years, and continues to rise, according to new analysis.
Latest figures show that the number of hospital visits by women with CVD in England – which includes heart disease and stroke – reached 642,000 for 2015/16, an increase of 93,000 on the number ten years ago (549,000).
The number of hospital visits by women with CVD has grown by 50% in the 20 years since it hit 420,000 in 1995. And the number has more than doubled since the early 1980s when it was less than 250,000.
