Last month, health minister Edwina Hart announced that a group of clinicians would review the current provision of vascular risk management and assessment and recommend a future model for Wales.

A spokesman for the Welsh Assembly said: ‘GPs will be represented on this group as they are one of the most important stakeholders.’

Currently, 150,000 people in the UK die from vascular disease each year.
