Your heart is incredibly important.

Beating an average of 72 times a minute, your heart pumps oxygen and nutrient-rich blood throughout your body, while simultaneously removing the waste products you don’t need.

When blood flow becomes limited or stopped, the body shuts down and - without intervention - can lead to death.

Make sure you know the facts. Download your free information pack to find out more about heart disease, its symptoms and causes, and treatment and prevention measures. Some of the information you will discover in this pack includes:

  • What is heart disease?
  • What causes heart disease?
  • What are the symptoms of a heart attack?

Two out of three families are affected by heart disease. Even if you are lucky enough not to be affected, it is likely you will know someone who is - a relative, a friend or a neighbour. No one can predict where the devastation of cardiovascular disease will strike next.
