Heart diseases have been found to one of the biggest killers in Wales, according to a recent report, and focusing thus on the same, the Welsh Government has come up with a completely new plan that would hopefully fight the same.
It has been found that a third of the total deaths in the country each year are seen as a consequence of a cardiac or circulatory disease only. And though occurrence of more than 10,000 deaths by heart problems is not a new fact, concerns grow higher on seeing that many deaths are premature.
“The Together for Health – a Cardiac Delivery Plan” has thus been designed, which is aimed not only at raising awareness about the diseases, but also to bring improvements in cardiac care. However, significant improvements have already been seen in a few past years from now.
Since, it has been noticed that lack of timely diagnosis as well as treatment sometimes become the cause of a worsening situation. The plan is also looking at spreading education regarding healthy lifestyles as well as finding ways to earl\y identify people at risk.
A public consultation for the new strategy is to go soon for some 12 weeks, the report finds.
