West Scotland support group

This group aims to help provide people with more information about living better with cardiomyopathy, with opportunities to hear from medical professionals as well as time to get to know others over free refreshments. 

The group is run by Cardiomyopathy UK volunteer supporters co-ordinated by the Support Group Coordinator Stephen Kirkham, assisted by David, Hazel, Maureen and Isabella.

Meetings are held on occasional Sunday afternoons at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary, Castle Street, Glasgow, G4 0SF from 12-3 pm.
