In the community
Cardiac Action Group owe its existence on Guernsey to the need for rehabilitation of cardiac patients locally. Although this primary task has now been taken on by HSSD more recently, we continue to be passionate concerning our involvement and support of cardiac health issues in the local community, including the provision of free training for CPR and AED use.
To find out about up and coming events, please follow us on our social media channels which we use to provide the latest information. This cuts down on administration ensuring we can spend the maximum time on our cardiac support.
