If this is a concern for you, please contact the doctor or practice nurse who can guide you through the clinic process should it be necessary for you to be monitored.
We support you in managing your heart condition and to ensure that the quality of your health remains at its best. It has been proven that correct management of people with cardiovascular disease will reduce the risks of death, heart attacks and admission to hospital.
At your appointment we will review risk factors, discuss lifestyle changes, review medications and arm you with the knowledge you need to manage your condition. You will be asked to have a blood test. This will mean that your cholesterol and other blood tests will be available for discussion at the clinic.
