Lea Valley Health wins research cluster bid

Lea Valley Health LTD were successful in their application to be a research cluster and
are delighted to be the first of this type in Hertfordshire.
The federation will work in collaboration with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).
Several research projects are under way and LVH Ltd looks forward to continuing to bring the many benefits of this type of work to their patient population.

Early detection of Atrial Fibrillation

Lea Valley Health Ltd have recognised the early importance of early detection of atrial fibrillation (AF) cases and the prevention of stroke so have launched an early detection pathway within the Lower Lea Valley community.

They are pleased to be working alongside the Eastern Academic Science Health network (EASHN), Pfizer, and East and North Herts CCG.

MyCognition

Lea Valley Health Ltd have obtained funding through Eastern Academic Health Science Network (EAHSN) to work alongside the team at MyCognition to run a trial initiative to issue patients registered within the locality who are living with one or more long time conditions, free access to a cognitive health app.

By taking a cognitive assessment and undertaking regular training the app aims to improve
cognitive health, which in turn could help patients living with these conditions deal with
certain aspects of their illness more effectively.
