Welcome to the Harrogate Heart Support Group
Who we are
The Group was established in January 1992 and is affiliated to the British Heart Foundation.
Our aim is to meet the needs of those with a cardiac condition who are living in the community of Harrogate and District.
The purpose of the group is to offer support to those who may have recently suffered a heart attack, undergone cardiac surgery, stent insertion or have any other heart-related problem, such as angina, all to support your continued recovery. We are keen to ensure that, if required, support is also extended to the patient’s family, recognising anxiety about the future is not only the concern of the patient.
