"Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United Kingdom for both men and women. Sometimes, symptoms can be subtle and go unnoticed until a major event like a heart attack occurs."

Your Healthy Heart is a unique collaboration of the charity Wessex Heartbeat and a team of highly experienced specialist nurses from the University Hospitals Southampton (UHS) Foundation Trust: Cardiac Centre.

"Atrial Fibrillation (Afib) is a heart disorder. During Afib the heart's two small upper chambers (the atria) quiver instead of beating effectively. Blood isn't pumped completely out of them, so it may pool and clot. If a piece of blood clot in the atria leaves the heart and becomes lodged in an artery in the brain, a stroke results. About 15% of strokes occur in patients with Afib. We are extremely proud to offer this test."
John Munro, CEO of Wessex Heartbeat
