  1. Costs and cost effectiveness of cardiovascular screening and intervention : the British family heart study.

    Article - En anglais


    To measure costs and cost effectiveness of the British family heart study cardiovascular screening and intervention programme.

    Design-Cost effectiveness analysis of randomised controlled trial.

    Clinical and resource use data taken from trial and unit cost data from external estimates.

    Setting-13 general practices across Britain

    Subjects-4185 men aged 40-59 and their 2827 partners.

    Intervention-Nurse led programme using a family centred approach, with follow up according to degree of risk.

    Main outcome measures-Cost of the programme itself ; overall short term cost to NHS ; cost per 1% reduction in coronary risk at one year.


    Estimated cost of putting the programme into practice for one year was £63 per person (95% confidence interval £60 to £65).

    The overall short term cost to the health service was £77 per man (£29 to £124) but only £13 per woman (-£48 to £74), owing to differences in utilisation of other health service resources.

    The cost per 1% reduction in risk was £5.08 per man (£5.92 including broader health service costs) and £5.78 per woman (£1.28 taking into account wider health service savings).

    Conclusions-The direct cost of the programme to a four partner practice of 7500 patients would be approximately £58 000.

    Annually, £8300 would currently be paid to a practice of this size working to the maximum target on the health promotion bands, plus any additional reimbursement of practice staff salaries for which the practice qualif...
