Together we can reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Heart attack and stroke are common causes of death and disability across Lancashire and South Cumbria.

But many heart attacks and strokes could be prevented.

Lifestyle factors can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, as can high blood pressure, atrial fibrillation (a form of abnormal heart rhythm), high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes. 

There are simple steps you can take to live well and to identify issues early to reduce your risk and keep your heart happy.

The British Heart Foundation is supporting us to deliver blood pressure tests in our communities in partnership with football clubs, leisure centres and pharmacies so that people know their numbers. This is because high blood pressure can increase the risk of a heart attack, kidney disease and stroke.
