Self-Help: Heart Age

The Heart Age Test tells you your heart age compared to your real age and explains why it's important to know your blood pressure and cholesterol numbers.

General lifestyle interventions to improve heart health:
  • Stopping smoking. It is never too late for this to be beneficial. Smoking-cessation services have been shown to be the most effective way to stop smoking. This can reduce your risk of developing other conditions such as heart disease, COPD and cancer.

Please contact the surgery to book an appointment with the nurse for smoking cessation advice.
