NATIONAL HEART MONTH 1st– 28th February – National Heart Month is an annual event observed in the UK, which aims to raise awareness about heart diseases. It encourages people to think about the choices they are making within their lifestyle to keep their heart healthy. National Heart Month aims to help people understand what good mental and physical health means for the heart, and how to stay informed about the risks of heart-related conditions.
Currently, there are around 7.6 million people in the UK living with heart and circulatory diseases and 1 in 2 of us will experience a heart or circulatory condition during our lifetime.
However, making small changes to your daily routine can make a big difference to your heart health, which in the long term could help reduce your risk of heart and circulatory related conditions such as diabetes, stroke, vascular dementia or heart disease.
