We want you to join us, whether you need help yourself, want to help others or just want to get involved.
Heartlink is an organisation created to help and involve heart patients in Ealing, Southall, Greenford and across West London. It is made up of recovering heart patients, carers, family members of patients as well as those wishing to learn about cardio-health, help "spread the word", and get involved in group activities, public health awareness & other activities. Our website is 'heartlink.charity'.
See the 'About us' section for fuller details of us and what we do.
Heartlink members, most of whom suffer from heart disease and associated problems, heard Dr.Jane Beckford give a range of useful advice on how best to cope with the worry and stress caused by these problems.
Jane is a Counselling Psychologist in the Ealing Cardiac Rehabilitation Team from Imperial College Healthcare, which is based at Hanwell Health Centre. Many of us have a lot of difficulty coping with the worry and depression that being diagnosed causes us. A copy of Jane’s useful presentation is ATTACHED BELOW.
The packed meeting of 60 members and supporters also heard a short presentation from Sara Tavares, a Specialist Heart Failure Nurse based at Hanwell Health Centre, inviting relevant members to participate in a research project she is working on regarding ‘heart failure with preserved ejection fraction’. This condition affects a proportion of those people who suffer from heart failure.
We are a very active group providing one-to one advice, running a community hub, holding regular meetings with cardiologists, running public information desks and stalls, running a weekly walkers group and much more.
