Heart health was promoted at an event in Denholme.
Thornton and Den-holme Medical Practice – in conjunction with its patient participation group – staged Friday’s initiative at the Mech-anics’ Institute.
“It was an opportunity for us to meet the local population in an informal environment and focus on the health issues that increase the risk of heart and stroke problems, such as diabetes and high blood pressure,” said a practice spokesman.
Visitors met GP specialists and could be screened for the heart rhythm condition atrial fibrillation.
The event was supported by the National Stroke Association, HALE and Carers’ Resource.
