The HEART UK FH Intelligence Network (FHIN)
The FH Intelligence Network provides an opportunity to help overcome workplace situations and identify solutions to help implement and run an effective FH service.
Meetings take place on Zoom on the third Tuesday of every month.
FHIN is open to all healthcare professionals with an interest in FH, as well as commissioners, service providers, policymakers and specialist lipid professionals.
To raise an agenda item, or for further details, please contact Christopher Allen, Head of Healthcare.
Lipid interest group
The Lipid Interest Group open to all nurses and allied health professionals with an interest in cholesterol and other blood fats (lipids).
The group aims to:
- Help educate healthcare professionals and patients on all aspects related to lipids;
- Network and support those working in lipids;
- Promote up to date research and information on lipid problems and their treatments
- Identify new and current lipid clinics in the UK and those health care professionals involved with them.
We send out a ‘round robin’ every 2 months, which includes articles, information, recent research, case studies or anything related to raised lipids and their treatment which would be of interest to the members. We also share information on upcoming conferences, meetings and study days. Any member of the group can contribute/volunteer to do this.
Contact Tina Dawson for more details and free membership.
