NHS England is marking Valentine’s Day with a hard-hitting new campaign aiming to raise awareness of the early symptoms of a heart attack. The push was created in partnership with M&C Saatchi London.
M&C Saatchi has partnered with NHS England to create a campaign with the core objective of getting people to recognise the early symptoms of a heart attack, which can often be dismissed or ignored.
Heart attack symptoms aren’t always severe, with people sometimes getting a squeezing sensation across the chest or a general feeling of unease, rather than the sudden sharp pains often seen in portrayals of heart attacks in popular culture. The new campaign aims to raise awareness of this and give people the encouragement and permission they need to call 999 right away if they experience these symptoms.
