How we can help.
We are always here to talk about any of your concerns regarding cardiac problems
although we obviously cannot answer any medical questions - only your medical
practitioner (GP or Consultant) can do this.
We can however talk about our experiences following Angina, Heart Attacks,
Angioplasty or Heart Surgery as we have many members who have had
these procedures. We can also provide support to your partner/carer.
We have leaflets and newsletters supplied by the British Heart Foundation
Redditch Hale & Hearties also publish it's own newsletter, which along with the
events calendar on the website keeps members advised of club news and future events.
