What is the group all about?
We exist to support cardiac patients and families undergoing open heart surgery at the Northern General Hospital.
We have a volunteer team of ex-patients who have had surgery themselves to provide a patient perspective to pre-op patients at the hospital. They share their experience of surgery and recovery on the ward and the pre-op information sessions to help allay patients' fears.
