OneHeart is a personalised patient support programme designed to help anyone diagnosed with Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) who has been prescribed an oral anti-platelet.
The programme is evidence-based, and designed to encourage patients to adhere to their prescribed medication and help them achieve better heart health outcomes. Patients who have enrolled receive a series of magazines, access to a dedicated website, text messages and e-mails.
The OneHeart programme includes information about the causes and treatment of ACS, how medication works and the type of lifestyle changes that can promote better heart health - for example physical activity, cardiac rehabilitation, smoking cessation and adopting a healthier diet. Crucially, it also provides tips and insights from health psychology specialists to help people change their daily lives by developing new routines and habits. There is also advice on how to stay motivated to help ensure those changes last.
Please note that the current OneHeart programme is no longer accepting new enrolments. We are continuing to support those patients who enrolled before 31st December 2017 until they have completed their full 12-month course of the patient support programme. However, as of 1st January 2018, the OneHeart nurse helpline will no longer be available. Patients will continue to receive the other programme support materials and communications, and will have access to the website if they previously registered to use it.
