Being told you have a long–term heart condition can be devastating.
People cope as best they can. But if they do not have the necessary information, skills or confidence it can be hard to manage their condition. It can be difficult to make well–informed decisions about their health, treatment or even daily life – let alone make plans for the future.
People living with long–term heart conditions need information, care and support from others.
If you live with a long–term heart condition, knowledge, skills and the right services are what put you in the driving seat in deciding what’s right for managing your condition and, most importantly, your life.
