Public Health England is launching a national Heart Age Campaign on Monday 4 Sept. This will run until the end of Sept and will include “Know your Numbers” week from 10-16 Sept and “World Heart Day” on Sat 29 Sept.
8 out of 10 deaths from heart disease can be prevented. This campaign is a good opportunity to encourage patients to have their blood pressure checked, and to find out their own Heart Age.
The Heart Age calculator can be found at https://www.bhf.org.uk/informationsupport/risk-factors/check-your-heart-age
If you are aged 45 years or over, and have not had your BP checked in the last 5 years. Please contact the practice and book in for a BP check.
