Healthy Heart Service

Every six minutes somebody in the UK dies from a heart attack. There are easy, everyday changes that you can do to help keep your heart healthy and reduce your risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Your lifestyle has a strong impact on the health of your heart and the risk of developing one of the leading causes of death for both men and women in the UK - Cardiovascular disease.

Cardiovascular disease is much more than just what we know as a heart attack. It is a wider term for a state in which the heart doesn’t work well enough to meet the needs of the body.

Angina is the most common form of heart disease and other conditions include heart failure and abnormal heart rhythms.

These conditions develop over a period of years and can’t be cured. Looking after your heart every day is the most reliable way to ensure your heart stays healthy.

We can measure your cholesterol, blood glucose levels, blood pressure and body mass index our pharmacy during a short and painless consultation. While it may not appear so, it is a complex process with very advanced technology so we apply a small charge.

Please ask our pharmacy team for information.
