The BMS-Pfizer Alliance is committed to supporting best practice and enhancing patient care within the NHS. As part of this commitment, this non-promotional training programme aims to upskill GPs so that they can optimise the management of patients with cardiovascular disease in primary care. The potential benefits include improving the detection of heart failure and atrial fibrillation, as well as reducing stroke rates and hospital admissions. 

In 2017, the BMS-Pfizer Alliance plans to support 14 of these upskilling meetings across England. The programme has been offered to all Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in England and we are currently working with the CCGs who have an interest in the programme to set these meetings up. More information on this project will be available in due course.
