Polypill prevention programme

Reduce your risk of heart attacks and strokes as part of the Polypill Prevention Programme

Heart attacks and strokes are the most common cause of death worldwide and one in three people will, at some stage, have a heart attack or stroke unless preventive action is taken. The Polypill concept was developed by Action on Sugar members Professor Sir Nicholas Wald and Professor Malcolm Law, as part of the Polypill Prevention Programme.  It combines personal healthcare advice from our team of medical practioners with expertise in cardiovascular disease prevention with, if appropriate, an effective course of preventative therapy.
