Abstract

Circulatory disease, as an adult health condition, affects millions of people globally and is the leading cause of health issues in both developed and developing countries [1]. It is also a leading cause of health service use in older persons and costs billions of pounds in the UK that could prompt considerations on long-term healthcare together with the entire socio-economic structure constantly [2] and [3]. The disease cases seem to increase continuously, possibly due to changes in risk factor profile or non-biological reasons [4] and [5]. Monitoring how much residents might consume health service due to various health conditions would be important in order to assist with individual, local and national health profiles and with re-allocation of medical and social recourse effectively on a regular basis and consequently to prevent from unnecessary pains and spending.
