"Earlier this year ministers announced plans to introduce heart screening checks for people aged 40 to 74 across the country.
Professor Andrew Neil, who led the research team, said: "Our findings reinforce the need for a national CVD risk assessment programme and we welcome the announcement by the Department of Health that plans are being put in place to institute primary care checks.
"Our research found that 75 per cent of men and 45 per cent of women who were over 50 already had CVD or diabetes, were taking cholesterol or blood pressure drugs or were at high risk of developing CVD.""
