Open Day for heart patients in Lanarkshire 

Healthy living advice and you can help shape future services 

 

"The event will allow patients the opportunity to pick up some valuable tips on healthy living, while promoting the network and encouraging patients to become involved in the work we do." 

Heart patients and their families are invited to an open day for advice on healthy living and to help shape future services.

The event, which will be held from10am to 3.30pm in the GLO Centre, Motherwell on Friday 17 June, has been organised by NHS Lanarkshire’s Coronary Heart Disease Network, which is involved in developing care for cardiac patients in Lanarkshire.

Network manager, Maureen Carroll said:  “The annual heart open day has become a very popular event which allows patients the opportunity to pick up some valuable tips on healthy living, while promoting the network and encouraging patients to become involved in the work we do.

“This can be at any level whether it is attending our patients group or simply receiving information and communications by post.”

Those taking part can enjoy healthy food demonstrations, a healthy living exhibition, an armchair yoga demonstration, as well as updates on Food Labelling, First Aid Overview, Oral Health Education and Atrial Fibrillation. 

Patients will also be able to participate in our very own “Question Time”, where they will be given the opportunity to pose their health questions to a panel of healthcare professionals, including a GP, cardiologist, cardiac physiotherapist, cardiac nurse specialist and a pharmacist.

A free heart-healthy lunch will also be provided. 

If you would like more details or would like to come along on the day then please contact Andrea Harrison on 01355 585186 or e-mail andrea.harrison@lanarkshire.scot.nhs.uk
