Welcome to the Harrogate Heart Support Group
We very much regret to announce the passing of our former chairman, Roger Slater, who died peacefully at St. Michael’s Hospice on Sunday 9th August. Roger was a most active member of our group and he will be missed by all who knew him.

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.
We are keen to ensure that support is also extended to the patient’s family as anxiety about the future is not only the concern of the patient.
What we offer
Pulseworks – Exercise sessions
Mobility, exercise and fitness sessions are held each week – supervised by qualified, cardiac-trained fitness instructors. There are six of these each week and involve supervised warm up and exercise routines, circuit activity and floor exercises all designed to improve your cardiac health.
Monthly Meetings – Harrogate District Hospital Classroom 3rd floor Strayside Wing.
These meetings provide an opportunity to get the latest information concerning heart disease and its treatment, and from time to time we cover subjects of a more general nature.
