Heart Support GroupsThere are also many other Heart Support Groups around the country. Some are small and provide monthly meetings for social support. Others provide social outings, newsletters and walking groups. Finally there are quite large organisations like MK Community Cardiac Group which offer regular exercise sessions on top of all the other activities.

Links in Milton Keynes
Our Members are associated with a wide range of Health Centres and Surgeries throughout Milton Keynes and the surrounding area. We're working on developing a good relationship with these surgeries and spreading the word about what we can offer here at Milton Keynes Community Cardiac Group. Part of that process is to have reciprocal links on each other's websites, for example the Red House Surgery in Bletchley:
We have particularly strong links with the MK Community Cardio-Vascular Service based at Whaddon Medical Centre in Bletchley. They provide diagnostic and cardiac management support for our members. You can find out more about their work by visiting their website at www.mkcardiovascular.co.uk.
