Looking after your heart, always
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.
The good news is that 80% of premature heart disease and stroke is preventable*, and 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.
We love hearts so much we’ve made it a key part of our health cover for our members. As well as access to Centre of Excellence cardiac units and hospitals, our members can access a broad range of preventative heart health supports and services to keep their hearts healthy and minimise their risk of developing heart disease as they get older.

The Key Stages of the Cardiac Journey
Whatever stage of your Cardiac Journey you are at – whether it’s initial screening or you’ve just been diagnosed, laya healthcare will look after you, always.
“Laya’s heart screening saved my life”
Marathon runner and Mum of two, Sinead Hamill, credits laya healthcare’s heart screening with saving her life. She went for a HeartBeat cardiac screening in 2012 which revealed a serious underlying heart condition that required urgent treatment and care in the specialist cardiac units of Blackrock Hospital and Mater Private hospitals.
