Today is World Heart Day, an opportunity to learn about the importance of maintaining good heart health as part of a healthy lifestyle. We spoke with Dr Sonya Babu-Narayan, Associate Medical Director at the British Heart Foundation and consultant cardiologist at Royal Brompton Hospital, about some of her top tips for maintaining a healthy heart.
I am very indebted to the specialist who saw me and staff at Royal Brompton Hospital. As a bronchiectasis outpatient, I've been coming to RBH for the last three years. Salues to RBH.
