Heart Age campaign launched

Heart disease (including heart attack and stroke) is still the leading cause of death amongst men. This month, 7,400 people will from heart disease or stroke.

To increase awareness about heart health and reduce their risk of heart attack and stroke, Public Health England (PHE) is urging adults to take three minutes out of their day to take the Heart Age Test.

The Heart Age Test is being re-launched as part of the One You Adult Health programme to mark the start of PHE Healthy Heart campaign, which will run throughout September in partnership with leading cardiovascular charities.

The Test offers an online assessment for anyone over 30 which allows a person to input basic physical and lifestyle-related information, and provides an immediate estimation of their heart age.

Having a heart age older than your chronological age means that you are at a higher risk of having a heart attack or stroke. Access the One You Heart Age Test and watch the video.
