Together we can
beat heart disease
Health services, local authorities, charities and other partners across Birmingham and Solihull's initiative brings our local GPs and hospital specialists together to help prevent people having a heart attack or stroke. We are working together to prevent heart attacks and strokes.
The best thing we can all do to stay well is to adopt healthy behaviours in our everyday lives.
We can also do more to prevent, find and manage conditions that increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes, such as;
- Atrial Fibrillation (a type of abnormal heart rhythm)
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
