Heart disease 'north-south' divide16th November 2007
The British Heart foundation has warned that Britain suffers from a north-south divide when it comes to heart disease.
The charity says that poverty and inequality are to blame and that parts of the north of England and Scotland are suffering disproportionately.
In warning that with as many as 80% of cases being preventable and that better health education is needed, it is to target its funding in areas of the country where coronary heart problems are the most serious.
