Your Practices Working Together


Sutton Manor's Heart (CHD) clinic provides monitoring and advice for anyone who has had a heart attack or an episode of angina (chest pain). There is good evidence that treating high blood pressure and high cholesterol coupled with lifestyle changes can reduce the risk of future heart attacks.  Getting enough exercise, smoking cessation, dietary changes, controlling stress and weight control can all help with risk reduction,

We aim to see all "heart patients" annually for monitoring which includes: blood pressure tests and blood tests. As relevant, smoking cessation, weight loss alcohol consumption, and increased exercise are all areas where improvements that may be made. We strongly advise all clinic patients to have the annual flu jab and to have an immunisation against pneumococcus (a type of pneumonia).

Cardiovascular problems can occur for a variety of reasons. When symptoms arise, it is important to consult a health professional so that the condition can be properly diagnosed and treated before symptoms develop further. If a heart attack or stroke is suspected, call 999 and ask for an ambulance.

Atrial Fibrilation

Atrial Fibrilation is a heart condition that causes an irregular and often abnormally fast heart rate. A normal resting heart rate should be regular and beating at between 60 and 100 beats per minute. 

Some people with atrial fibrillation, particularly older people, do not have any obvious symptoms. Heart rhythm is only discovered during routine tests for other conditions.

People with atrial fibrillation are at increased risk of having a stroke. In extreme cases Atrial Fibrillation can also lead to heart failure.  AF can be detected by simply checking your pulse.

Checking and assessing your pulse can give you a good indication of whether you have atrial fibrillation, but a full medical investigation will be needed before a diagnosis can be made.

If AF is suspected, a GP may conduct an electrocardiogram and refer you to a heart specialist.


A stroke is a serious life-threatening medical condition that happens when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and urgent treatment is essential. If a stroke is suspected DIAL 999 immediately and request an ambulance.

Although some people may recover quickly, many people who have a stroke need long-term support to help them regain as much independence as possible. A team of different specialists may help with rehabilitation, including physiotherapists , psychologists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, dietitians as well as specialist nurses and doctors.

Heart Attack
