HOW THIS WORKS

CardioKits from Cardiologist's Kitchen.

Cardiologist’s Kitchen is the name of our project.

We have created CardioKits (health packs) for patients in BANES and Wiltshire. GP Practices will be giving them to patients with high blood pressure, who are referred for and open to dietary and lifestyle interventions that we recommend.

We call the packs ‘CardioKits’ because they are kits to help with heart health (cardiovascular health).  The packs contain information and vouchers so patients who are referred to our project can enjoy savings on ingredients, products and new experiences we recommend to them.  These are incentives to encourage patients towards trying new things.  We hope that patients will be inspired to make lasting changes when they see and feel the results of their improved diets.

This poster explains the process of rolling out the Cardiologist’s Kitchen project over the last year or so.

    • Thank you for your comment. If you think you may be eligible we are launching our CardioKits in the next couple of weeks. I will notify our subscribers (people who join our website) as well as posting here and on our NEWS page.
      Please do not delay visiting your GP if you have a concern about your blood pressure measurement. Best Wishes.

  • It sounds very clear but unfortunately I’m just outside your area (I’m in Frome).

    • You can still engage with our project. Some of the incentives for patients in a CardioKit are available to everyone on our SAVE page. The CardioKits encourage people to try new things to improve their cardiovascular health but if you are already motivated and follow our dietary recommendations, then we anticipate you will see improvements and gain benefit from engagement with CardioKit.
      We will be in touch anyway, Judith.
