"Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in the UK and particularly of dying young, below the age of 75. Our heart health hub summarises the latest medical evidence and guides you through the symptoms and signs to look out for. Equally importantly, we will also give you all the information you need to empower you to make those healthier choices. Let’s work together to improve your heart health so you can live a longer, healthier life."
