Conditions

A female nurse sits at bedside with woman as they look at information together.

There are many different heart conditions and problems. Together, we call them heart disease.

It can be confusing and scary to be diagnosed with a heart condition, especially if you’ve never heard of it before.

In this section you’ll find more information on all the conditions, plus we tell you how you can get support.

Heart conditions include angina, heart attack, heart failure and abnormal heart rhythms - as well as many other conditions including congenital heart disease and inherited heart conditions.

Sometimes, understanding your heart problem and knowing the facts can help you come to terms with it and help you to feel less worried.
