Chronic Heart Disease
Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) is caused by narrowing of the arteries around the heart, causing angina or possibly a coronary event in the past.
You should have an annual review in the CHD clinic with our Practice Nurse, Carmel Unsworth if you suffer from Coronary Heart Disease.
The clinic runs on Wednesdays between 14:00 and 15:30 in Beckington or Frome.
At the review you will be asked about your symptoms and how you get on with the medication. Also lifestyle issues will be discussed including exercise and at the clinic you will have your pulse and blood pressure taken.
The aim is to monitor your condition, highlight any issues you may have and prevent future coronary events.
More information on Coronary Heart disease is available on the British Heart Foundation website.
