Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the UK’s biggest killer. You may not experience any symptoms, but you may experience a heavy feeling or tightness in your chest. This could be angina - an early warning of coronary heart disease.

If your coronary arteries become blocked cutting off the blood and oxygen supply to your heart, you may have a heart attack. Symptoms of a heart attack can be very similar to angina. However they can also feel like heart burn or indigestion.

If you think you are having a heart attack dial 999 immediately.

Our experienced cardiovascular consultants will diagnose and treat your coronary heart disease and advise you on the changes you may need to make to keep your heart healthy.
