Heart Attack Prevention - Takeheart Health Check.
An ounce of prevention is worth a peck of cure
At Takeheart we aim to improve the health of our clients and reduce the work load of cardiologists and heart surgeons. We do this by offering a Health Check which majors on the risk factors for coronary heart disease and issues a written report. Our Health Check can be taken at a consultation or on-line. We are a mine of knowledge - it is worth exploring.

Understand your risk for developing Coronary Heart Disease - Heart attack. Takeheart does this for you by measuring a number of clinical variables and feeding the results into an expert system on a PC. We give you a printed report to take home (515). The report covers 7-8 A4 pages and contains the results of the tests, their meaning, calculation of the risk according to the method described by Professor G.Shaper of the Royal Free Hospital in London and advice. (See an example of a report). The tests include history, cholesterol, blood pressure, lung function, liver function, carbon monoxide, weight and stress assessment. You can come to see us in Norwich. We can come to you in the UK. You can take the Check over the internet, reports are constructed and checked by an experienced senior physician so may take a day or two to arrive.
