Welcome to BGSG
History and Aims
Each year we endeavour to arrange a trip out for Members and Carers
Bridging the gap between Diagnosis & Treatment
How we Help
The most disturbing aspect of heart disease is the uncertainty regarding symptoms and worry as to the future.
The greatest benefit to be obtained is to meet people, apparently fit and leading a relatively full life, and to find that that they have experienced similar problems to yourself.
The intention is to provide support after the patient leaves hospital and to continue this through the recovery period.
Patients are encouraged to join the Support Group so that they can receive ongoing advice and guidance leading to a greater understanding, increased confidence and a fuller life.
Some of our members feel that being involved with the Support Group has been the biggest single step to psychological recovery.
The Support Group is run by an elected committee of Trustees appointed each year at the AGM.
For the time being, we meet at Egerton United Reform Church, Blackburn Road, Bolton BL7 9TB from 7 for 7:30pm on the third Wednesday of each month with tea, coffee and biscuits prior to the formal meeting. Meeting dates may be subject to change at short notice. Please enquire using the enquiry box below.
