Doctor in the House: The Heart of the Burden of Cardiovascular Diseases

The burden of cardiovascular diseases is one of the biggest public health challenges we face, and not only affects our healthcare system but our economy as well. But with the early years of the pandemic significantly affecting patient care, how are patients and healthcare workers coping, and how can we better support those at highest risk of developing cardiovascular disease? Consultant urologist Dr George Lee is joined by Datuk Dr Noel Thomas Ross, Head of the Cardiology Unit at Hospital Kuala Lumpur.
