Kent support group

The Kent support group was set up after the cardiomyopathy information day in Maidstone in November 2013 and held its first meeting in March 2014.

The support group is organised by Colin Mcvittie (below) and Sarah, and aims to provide people with information about living with cardiomyopathy as well as offering the opportunity to meet others affected by the same condition.

For more details email Colin at or contact us Jo Franks, Support Group Manager at or call 01494 791224.

The support group also has a closed Facebook group


Meeting dates

Saturday 19 January, 9:30 am to 12:30 pm

This meeting will be an open discussion giving people affected by the condition the opportunity to share and meet with others similarly affected.  We will also be joined by Ali Thompson, Head of Services Cardiomyopathy UK who will be leading a session on Loss, which will include many aspects of loss for example lifestyle, identity, confidence etc and pointers on how to deal with them.
