An ageing population and increased life expectancy means that more people are living with illnesses such as cancer and dementia (Office for National Statistics, 2018). Improvements in cancer diagnosis and treatment have resulted in cancer survival rates in the UK doubling over the last 40 years (Cancer Research UK, 2023). The Global Burden of Disease reported that between 2010 and 2019, the incidence of new cancer diagnoses increased by 23.6% (Global Burden of Disease 2019 Cancer Collaboration, 2022). Thankfully, advances in treatment modalities have resulted in improved survival rates both nationally and internationally (Baili et al, 2015; Chang et al, 2017a; Anker et al, 2019; Office for National Statistics, 2019). In the UK, cancer survival is at an all-time high (NHS, 2019). However, there is clear evidence that patients living with cancer are at an increased risk of cardiovascular complications linked to some of the treatments they receive; subsequently, their risk of death from cardiovascular disease is higher than that of the general population (Sturgeon et al, 2019).
