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.
