Coronary Heart Disease

Patients who have had angina, heart attacks or coronary by-pass grafts are offered an annual review with one of the nurses. You will be asked to attend for cholesterol blood testing two weeks beforehand. Blood pressure, cholesterol, diet, exercise, alcohol, smoking and weight and medication will be reviewed, and flu and pneumonia vaccinations will be offered. It will be ensured that the necessary preventative medication is prescribed.

Cholesterol control and regular exercise can prevent heart disease.
