Heart of our City

The Heart of our City programme is for anyone who lives in Dublin 8 and wants to improve their own heart health and that of their family and friends.

The programme also supports GPs, pharmacists, and community groups to help people in Dublin 8 better understand heart disease.

We want everyone to have the support and information they need on how to live a healthy life, how to improve their heart health and prevent any problems, how to cope if they have heart disease and, how to get support when recovering from a stroke.

The Heart of our City programme is brought to you by the Irish Heart Foundation, Smart D8 (who aim to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Dublin 8) and pharmaceutical company, Novartis.

For more information please email: D8support@irishheart.ie or call us on Tel: 01 6685001 (please mention the Heart of our City programme when you call)

As part of the Heart of our city programme, we have produced a leaflet with all the information you need to keep your heart healthy. The leaflet also outlines the various supports available through the Heart of our city programme to help you keep active and live well.

The supports available include:

Free heart health checks for Dublin 8 residents
