Love Your Heart!

There are approximately 2.6 million people in the UK living with Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) and as every single one of us has a heart, every single one of us is at a potential risk.

There are many different heart conditions and understanding these isn’t easy, however learning how your heart works will benefit you and your family.  “Maintaining a healthy lifestyle by keeping fit and eating sensibly are both important factors in making sure your heart stays strong,” said Navinder Dhesi, Pharmacy Manager at South Kirkby Pharmacy, “and having your blood pressure checked regularly is also a great way to get to know your heart.”

“Every three minutes someone in the UK is struck by a heart attack, and around 30% of these heart attacks are fatal”, said Navinder.  “With our support, you can help your family understand the importance of healthy living and prevent heart disease from striking you and your family.”

“As February is National Heart Month, why not pop down to your local pharmacy and have your blood pressure checked?” said Navinder.  “We’re open 5 days a week, and we welcome everybody.”
