Dorset Cardiomyopathy Support Group launched

Over 40 people attended the first meeting of our Dorset Cardiomyopathy Support Group on Saturday.

The meeting was organised by Cardiomyopathy UK supporters Lorraine May and Gilbert Wheeler, and heart failure nurse specialist Tracey Dare, from Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation.

Our medical director Robert Hall talked about cardiomyopathy and latest treatments, and gave an update on developments at the charity and our plans for the future.
