GPs can help by taking a more proactive role in identifying those people who are at relatively high risk of suffering coronary heart disease by referring patients to  dedicated heart clubs, where available.  

Your GP can refer you onto a Keep Well scheme if you are considered to be at high risk or developing heart disease; and you will benefit from increasing your physical activity levels, thus improving your lifestyle  and making enormous improvements to your health, wellbeing and risk of heart disease.  

Bournemouth Heart Club is a great example.
