The Bolton Cardiac Support Group (BCSG) meets every month to offer friendship and support to people who are experiencing or recovering from some form of coronary (heart) illness such as angina, heart attack, heart surgery or ischemic heart disease. (The welcome also extends to their “carer” – spouse, partner, family member or friend).

Our monthly meetings cover subjects such as diet, medication, exercise and more. Each month we have a speaker (cardiologist, doctor, pharmacist, cardiac rehabilitation specialist, etc.) who gives a brief presentation which is then followed by a question and answer period. We also occasionally have some non-medical topics and social meetings.

So, if you think the BCSG might be of help to you, then why not come along and join us? You have nothing to lose but perhaps a lot to gain!
