By patients, for patients

Heart Support Groups are as varied as the people in them.

Some are large organisations offering a weekly programme of activities, while others are much smaller and meet once a month.

They offer the chance to share experiences in a friendly and mutually supportive environment, and provide a wide range of other benefits and activities for their members.

These could include:

  • exercise sessions with qualified instructors
  • walking, cycling and swimming groups
  • coffee mornings and other social events
  • evenings with guest speakers
  • links to other services such as quitting smoking
  • hospital visiting
  • yoga and relaxation classes, and
  • visits to places of interest.

We've all got the same problems - that's what brought us together - but we all have an incredibly positive outlook. That's what keeps people coming back.
