HEART UK’s campaign for Better Heart Health

Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, is supporting HEART UK, The Cholesterol Charity, in its aim to ensure that cardiovascular disease (CVD), one of the UK’s biggest killers, remains a key government priority.

HEART UK has just released a new cholesterol plan for the government setting out recommendations designed to address the issues around treatment and management of CVD.

Justin said:

“With cardiovascular disease remaining one of the UK’s biggest killers, and cholesterol being a major contributor, I support HEART UK’s attempts to make sure that everyone knows their cholesterol level and that the Government does all it can to see that patients at high risk of CVD are identified and cared for in the best possible way.

“Cholesterol testing is simple, quick and painless, speak to your GP or pharmacist to find out more.

“In Ellesmere Port and Neston the number of deaths in 2010-2013 for which CVD was the underlying cause was over 900. I am committed to working with our NHS team and in Parliament to ensure that heart disease services are well-coordinated and remain a public health priority not only locally but throughout the rest of the country.”
