What is the group all about?
We aim is to support The Steph Talbot Cardiac Rehabilitation Department at Yeovil District Hospital helping patients who have suffered heart related conditions, by providing facilities to enable them to undergo an exercise programme monitored by appropriately trained staff, together with health education and friendly support. Following successful completion of Phase III, patients are welcome to join our afternoon and evening gym sessions, Phase IV, which are supervised by fully trained BACR staff at Yeovil District Hospital and 2 other locations in Crewkerne and Wincanton. We also provide funding for counselling for vulnerable patients who need help coming to terms with their diagnoses/conditions. This service is provided to residents in the area covered by Yeovil District Hospital. The charity holds various fundraising activities and social events.
