The process of JBS3

The JBS is a reiterative process; previous JBS reports were produced in 1998 and 2005 (JBS2). The JBS3 project was managed by the British Cardiovascular Society and supported by the British Heart Foundation.  The following Societies make up the JBS:

Association of British Clinical Diabetologists
British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention Rehabilitation
British Association for Nursing in Cardiovascular Care
British Cardiovascular Society
British Heart Foundation
British Hypertension Society
British Renal Society
Diabetes UK
HEART UK
The Renal Association
Stroke Association

The aim of the JBS3 was to review recent research, evidence and guidelines on prevention of CVD, to distil the information into key recommendations available in one report, for use by GPs and practitioners.
