Coronary heart disease is the UK's biggest killer, with one in every four men and one in every six women dying from the disease.
In the UK, approximately 300,000 people have a heart attack each year. Angina affects about one in 50 people, and in the UK there are an estimated 1.2 million people with the condition. It affects men more than women, and your chances of getting it increase as you get older.
By making some simple lifestyle changes, you can reduce your risk of getting coronary heart disease. And if you already have heart disease, you can take steps to reduce your risk of developing further heart-related problems.
A 6 monthly or annual check up is recommended. We will send an invite to you when your check due.
