Next meeting date - online

  • Tuesday 7th May - 7pm - 9pm

This is an online meeting, hosted on zoom. To get the login details for this meeting please email services@cardiomyopathy.org

Hugh and Sarah will be joined by Craig Russell, giving a talk about Complex cardiac devices: ICDs and CRTs – benefits, pitfalls and lifestyle. Craig is a senior Arrhythmia Specialist Nurse at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, and he will touch on the practical, physical and psychological issues of having an implanted device, from first being told you need one, to what happens “on the day”, to recovery from the procedure, to what life is like with one.

After Craig’s talk there will be plenty of time for questions, and for more general chat. 

Members old and new are both very welcome!
