A new website has been created for members of the public in Cheshire & Merseyside to find out more about the conditions that could affect their hearts. The Happy Hearts website has been designed as an easily accessible and useable resource to offer information on the risks of cardio vascular disease, including high blood pressure, atrial fibrillation (a condition causing irregular heartbeat) and cholesterol.
On the site you will find useful information on how to measure, control and treat cardio vascular diseases. This includes tips on lifestyle changes which could help to reduce your risk of heart disease. You will find links to apps which can help you track fitness, alcohol intake and calories, as well as helping you to quit smoking. There is also a location search tool to find information on where to get a blood pressure check for free in your local area.
Included in the resources there are also a number of videos providing further information on topics such as: ‘What is cardio vascular disease risk?’ and ‘How can my local pharmacist help with my blood pressure?’.
Visit the Happy Hearts website now to find out how you can help to keep your heart happy.
