Please bring in regular screenings to prevent heart disease.

Why is this important?

With a family history of severe heart disease, I do not understand why I cannot get a heart check on the NHS without first having to suffer an incident. Is prevention now, not better than a potentially more expensive intervention in the future, assuming the patient survives?? There are checks done for cancer, why not the heart?
