Over 1 in 10 need cardiac follow-up
About 13% of the 110,000+ people we have assessed in HeartBeat cardiac screening sessions have needed follow-up cardiac tests, since we began the programme.
Every laya healthcare member over the age of 12 is entitled to a HeartBeat screening once every two years at a Laya Health and Wellbeing Clinic or another convenient location. This includes an ECG and review by a cardiologist.
Protect your heart health and safeguard your future. Make sure you attend for your HeartBeat screening.
You can now book your screening online through your Member Area account or on the Laya App.
