Heart disease: information and local support services

Also known as Coronary or Ischaemic Heart Disease generally affects more men than it does women and is now responsible for up to 73,000 deaths in the United Kingdom per year. Symptoms of Heart Disease include Angina (chest pain), heart attack and heart failure. In the majority of cases, heart disease is largely preventable by making responsible and healthy lifestyle choices. Being smoke free, eating a healthy balanced diet, taking regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight are all important.

If you are a Cheshire East resident who is interested in making some long term changes to your health and lifestyle visit ‘One You Cheshire East’ for further information on the local health and lifestyle services.
