Family, friends and carers
Heart Valve Voice want to ensure all patients, and their families, have access to resources that can help them manage heart valve disease and fully benefit from treatment.
Our information & resources have been written for patients, but are also very useful for their families, friends and carers too. If you are supporting someone with heart valve disease, encourage them to use these resources and take a look yourself
Families often need as much support as the individual with valve disease, especially dealing with a long-standing health condition and prior to planning surgery. - Christina Bannister, Nurse Case Manager for Cardiac Surgery, Southampton General.
