Healthy Heart and Lung Project Returns

Date: 14 November 2022 02:43

There are 7.6 million people living with cardiovascular disease (CVD) in the UK, and it is the largest cause of premature death in deprived areas. However, it's also been identified as the single biggest area where the NHS can save lives over the next 10 years.

This has inspired Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital (LHCH) to work with local partners to improve the heart and lung health of local populations in Liverpool.

Following the success of its first healthy heart and lung day in June, LHCH is delighted that its next event will take place on: 

Wednesday 30th November 2022, from 9am-5pm

Emmanuel Church, Higher Lane, Fazakerley, Liverpool 

Trained professionals from Aintree Primary Care Network and Liverpool City Council will join LHCH staff, to support attendees by:

  • registering those who are NOT registered with a GP to a practice that is readily accessible to them 
  • providing advice, support and signposting to local services 
  • offering advice and support to attendees on how to make positive lifestyle changes e.g. stop smoking services, alcohol and diet advice
  • supporting with the opportunistic diagnostic checks
  • providing information on library services in the community

The event is open to all and is entirely free to drop-in during the day.

We look forward to seeing you on the day.
