Are you over 40? Then get a Health Check.
If you are over 40, the British Heart Foundation strongly recommends that you get a health MOT.
Also called a heart health or cardiovascular risk assessment, a health check is an assessment carried out by your GP or practice nurse to find out your risk of coronary heart disease, and is available for free to anyone over 40.
Based on your results, they will advise you on what you can do to keep your heart healthy. This may involve lifestyle changes such as improving your diet, giving up smoking and becoming more physically active. They will also consider whether you need to start taking medicines to lower your cholesterol and your blood pressure to protect your heart.
