Lipids Advisory Group

Chair: Dr Dermot Neely

Due to a substantial reduction in funding for the Clinical Networks this year, we have been directed to focus on a reduced number of national priorities. Some cardiovascular workstreams are not part of our 2016/17 priorities and as such we are unable to provide administrative or project management support to the Lipids Advisory Group.

We want to take this opportunity to commend the work of this group between the period 2013 – 2016 and we have compiled documents of their achievements which are available via the links below. The group continues to meet and contacts can be provided if required.

Lipids Advisory Group Legacy Document

Familial Hypercholesterolaemia Legacy Document

The group is made up of representatives from across the network with an interest in the investigation and management of lipid disorders. The group is chaired by Dr Dermot Neely.

The aim of the group is to promote evidence based practice in the management of lipid disorders, including Familial Hypercholesterolaemia, raise the profile of Lipid Specialist Services, inform commissioners and influence investment decisions.

The Advisory Group will set network standards in line with evidence based practice, benchmark against these to monitor performance and evaluate service provision and health outcomes ensuring standards and guidelines are adhered to and maintained.

The group will enhance and share areas of good practice both locally and nationally, setting goals and action plans for service improvement where needed.
