Welcome to SHARP!

Scottish Heart and Arterial disease Risk Prevention (SHARP) is a charity set up by clinicians in the 1980s to tackle the problem of premature death through arterial disease in Scotland.

Initially this was a small group of clinicians who undertook projects in health promotion, research and education. Over the years SHARP has grown in membership to reflect the clinical work going on across Scotland in the area of arterial disease management. Our activities continue and build on the work done by previous Trustees promoting evidence-based care and providing education to all clinicians across Scotland.


The SHARP Annual Scientific Meeting 2017 will take place on Thursday 23rd – Friday 24th November and we will be returning to Crieff Hydro Hotel!

Registration is not yet open however should you wish to attend please email SHARP@dundee.ac.uk and we will add you to our circulation list.
