COMMENT - Rates drop

HEART attacks come without warning and we all know somebody who it has affected.

Numbers appear to be dropping, but heart disease remains the UK’s biggest killer and it is important to remember that any of us could be at risk.

If you are middle aged and have not had your cholesterol and blood pressure checked make sure you go and do it for both your own and your families sake.

For the first time in a long time Wigan is below the national average for a heart related health complaint so perhaps lessons are being learnt and long may it continue.

Do the right thing and get checked out by your GP.
