NHS Scarborough and Ryedale CCG is supporting the Humber, Coast and Vale Healthy hearts website, which has been launched to help improve heart health among people living in Humber, Coast and Vale.
About the Humber, Coast and Vale Healthy Hearts Website
In the Scarborough and Ryedale area alone, more than 20,000 people are affected by high blood pressure (hypertension) - a leading cause of heart disease and stroke. We estimate that 6850 people (three in 10) have high blood pressure but remain undiagnosed, while 3454 people have an irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation) and more than 2965 have experienced a stroke or mini stroke.
The good news is there is a lot we can all do to keep our hearts healthy. This is why here in Scarborough and Ryedale we are supporting the Healthy Hearts website, which has been launched to help improve heart health among people living in Humber, Coast and Vale.
The Healthy Hearts website is designed to help people reduce their risk of stroke and heart attack, and help to lower the number of people dying prematurely from cardiovascular disease - a general term for conditions affecting the heart or blood vessels.
The website has been created to help people living in Humber, Coast and Vale – a region which includes North East Lincolnshire, as well as North Lincolnshire, Hull and East Yorkshire, Vale of York and Scarborough and Ryedale.
