Heart attack

Overview

In this section you can find out about the experience of a heart attack (myocardial infarction) by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Our researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 37 people (including 4 carers) in their own homes. Find out what people said issues such as symptoms, surgery, returning to work and intimate relationships. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
