Patient Comments 

Definitely feel better.  Blood pressure is more stable.

Needed operation but risk too great; 'just try to live a normal existence.'  Step forward Heart Support, where I get relief, both mental and physical.  Attend class and the effort put in is up to me - no pressure.  Friendships made over a cup of tea.  Can honestly say your work and methods are the best.

Diabetic;  Shocked and felt vulnerable when told of the risk to my heart.  After joining Heart Support I am feeling better both mentally and physically.  Reassuring to know its run with health professionals and caring people.

Feel very confident that the cardiovascular workout will help in no uncertain terms to stave of further heart problems.

Tutor excellent, motivating in a friendly and supportive atmosphere - fun but with a purpose.
