Cardiac support group for patients and families

12 November 2019

Our cardiac support group is an informal environment where recent and former heart patients meet for a regular programme of presentations by:

  • Cardiac specialists
  • Dietitians
  • Nurses
  • Doctors
  • Cardiac physiologists
  • Other practitioners

You will find that many who have attended over the years are keen to endorse the benefits they gain from:

  • Better understanding about the procedures involved and the principles of aftercare
  • Being able to ask questions in an informal setting
  • Simply being able to talk about issues with others who have experienced similar concerns

You, your partner and other loved ones are all always welcome to join the Spire St Anthony’s Cardiac Support Group meetings.
