Welcome to the website for the Joint British Societies recommendations on the prevention of Cardiovascular Disease (JBS3). On this site you can access the JBS3 Risk Calculator and download the JBS3 report, with its recommendations.

The proposals published in the JBS3 report are consensus recommendations, and are a collaborative effort from the British cardiovascular societies who deal with cardiovascular disease prevention. The report was written for GPs and practitioners to help guide their work with patients, in preventing CVD.

The JBS3 risk calculator is a tool to help communicate the risk of CVD and the benefits of interventions, whether they are lifestyle or pharmacological. Although the JBS3 risk calculator is openly available on this website, it has been designed for use by Doctors and Practitioners with their patients.

An app of the JBS3 Risk Calculator was released on Monday 2 June 2014. Available in both iTunes and Google play, the JBS3 Heart Risk app features all of the key parts of the JBS3 Risk Calculator.
