Heart Health Check

 

Have you had a heart health check?

 

What is it?

A heart health check is a 15-20 minute appointment with one of our nurses for people who:

  • are aged 45 - 49 years
  • have not had a heart attack, heart problems or stroke

We are providing free heart health checks in July, August and September 2018.

To understand your risk of heart attack or stroke, our nurses will check your blood pressure, arrange blood tests if required and talk to you about:

  • your age
  • if you smoke
  • blood pressure
  • cholesterol
  • your weight
  • what you eat
  • how much you move
  • your family history
  • diabetes
  • kidney disease

Why is it important?

Having a heart attack or stroke is very serious and will have a big impact on your life.  You may not be aware that you are at risk, as often there are no symptoms.  The best thing you can do to find out if you are at risk is to make an appoinment for a heart health check.  We can assess if you are at low, medium or high risk.  If you have a medium or high risk, our nurses will arrange a follow-up health assessment and apoointment with your usual GP to talk about what you can do to lower your risk and help you get started to improve your health.

Don't let a heart attack or a stroke be the first sign that something is wrong.
