Laya Healthcare to offer cardiac screening in Limerick

Laya Healthcare announces it is extending its HeartBeat screening locations to Limerick. The potentially life-saving HeartBeat benefit is unique to laya healthcare and offers a heart screening to all members over the age of 12.

Looking after your heart health is important at every age. Heart disease can strike the old and the young and is one of the leading causes of death in Ireland each year[1]. HeartBeat screening is for the detection of underlying conditions that may lead to or cause cardiac events such as heart attack, stroke, or Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, and also the risk factors that lead to chronic heart disease.

Statistics show that two people die from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) every week in Ireland[2]. However, the HeartBeat screening can help to identify cardiac abnormalities in good time to potentially save a person’s life. On average, 10% of those tested are referred on for further cardiac investigations.

                                                                                                                                                      

Speaking about the expansion of the HeartBeat screening locations, Head of Marketing, Kevin Kent at laya healthcare said: “A key focus at laya healthcare is to empower our members to look after their health and wellbeing so they can be at their very best, always. To date, we’ve screened over 100,000 members and we are thrilled to be expanding our HeartBeat locations, so we can screen more people.”

 

The GP led HeartBeat screening includes a body mass index (BMI), blood pressure checking, physical examination, an electrocardiogram (ECG) and a consultant cardiologist review and report. Laya healthcare members over the age of 12 are entitled to a heart screening once every two years at no additional cost.
