Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the most common cause of heart attacks, and the single biggest killer worldwide. What’s more, over 900,000 people are living with heart failure in the UK alone; not to mention those who are at an increased risk of developing heart issues due to a family history of the disease. Put simply, coronary heart disease is a major threat to human health.
At LycaHealth, we are so passionate about the power of preventative healthcare, which is why we offer a range of premium health assessments, including cardiac and prostate screening. Access to this type of superior healthcare enables you to make your health a priority in your own life, at a time and location that fits around your busy lifestyle. Health services should never be a burden or inconvenience, they should always work for you.
Unless the obvious signs are there, you have a pre-diagnosed heart condition, or have experienced something such as a heart attack in the past; it can be difficult to spot the warning signs of heart problems. Something as trivial as nausea and fatigue can be linked to more sinister heart problems. The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted people’s mindset, leading to many more of us making our health a priority within our own lives; this is particularly the case in terms of cardiovascular health. Moreover, there is increasing evidence to suggest COVID-19 damages heart muscle, regardless of the severity of Covid-19 symptoms a person has experienced. This is extremely concerning as damaged heart muscle puts a person at a higher risk of developing heart complications in the future.
From COVID-19, to family history, health conditions and lifestyle choices; there are so many factors that put your heart health at risk. Rest assured, our cardiac health screening service is a purposefully designed heart check up that allows you to put your health into your own hands. Find out more below.
We offer a comprehensive range of heart health assessments that provide you with detailed insight into your cardiovascular health. Please see our packages below:

Palpitations can feel like fluttering, irregular beating or pounding for a few seconds or minutes in your chest and these could be symptoms of a heart rhythm disorder.
