This Valentine’s Day we are teaming up with the One You campaign to encourage all our patients over the age of 40 to know their ABCs of Heart Health:
A Atrial Fibrillation: Atrial fibrillation is a heart condition that causes an irregular and often abnormally fast heart rate. Learn more here
B Blood Pressure: Why is this important?
C Cholesterol : Why is this important?
If you are over 40 and don’t know what your blood pressure is it’s never been easier to find out. Just pop into your local pharmacy and they will be happy to check it free of charge. Make sure you do 3 readings in quick succession, and let us know what they are. We will then let you know if you need to do anything else.
If you want a more in depth review then you may be able to make an appointment for an NHS Health Check where we will screen you for Atrial Fibrillation, do your blood pressure, and measure your cholesterol as well as screening you for diabetes. Please contact reception for details.
Check out the One You site for more details.
