Welcome to Wyre Forest Take Heart
Affiliated to the British Heart Foundation.
Take Heart is the Heart Support Group for the Wyre Forest area based on Kidderminster Treatment Centre. It was founded in 1998 by Specialist Cardiac Rehabilitation Nurse, Sally Blowing.  Sally is the chairperson of the Committee which otherwise comprises of heart patients and partners.  Meetings are a means of allowing heart patients and their partners to meet others for mutual support.  The current programme of events is shown on the  PROGRAMME page of this site.

Many heart patients and partners as well as members of the general public meet on Saturday mornings for Stride and Stroll walks in N.W Worcs.  Stride and Stroll was also founded by Sally Blowing (in June 2002) and regularly attracts up to 80+ walkers.  For heart patients this forms part of their Phase IV rehabilitation. It is therefore no surprise that Take Heart and Stride and Stroll are inextricably linked, offering Physical, Mental and Social support to heart patients in their recovery period and in their ongoing lives.  The Stride and Stroll programme can be found on the STRIDE AND STROLL web-site.

Phase IV exercise classes are also run by the Exercise Professionals (Pulse-Fit) based at Kidderminster Treatment Centre.  Details of locations and costs of these classes are shown on the CLASSES page of this site.

The Cardiac Rehabilitation department runs Health Education Talks.  These talks are by invitiation only for all new patients to Cardiac Rehabilitation  and their partners.  Details of these talks are given on the EDUCATION page of this site.
