Wessex Heartbeat provide many services to patients' families who come from Guernsey and we are sure many of you on the island will be aware of us and our support in the community. In 2019, 298 families from Guernsey, stayed in our 25 bedroom, home from home, Heartbeat House which acts as a safe haven to those who need it, when their loved ones are being treated at the Wessex Cardiac Centre.
We have built up a good relationship with our friends on Guernsey, therefore, we are delighted to announce we will be setting up a new group on the Island called Guernsey Friends of Heartbeat. This would help us to continue building new relationships with new friends that not only support us, but can spread the word of the work we do. This will also raise the awareness of the services we can offer, and provide, to many islanders on Guernsey.
