These dates are subject to alteration if the Hospital Management need the room we use, although of late this has not happened often.

 

We are very lucky because we have 2 physiologists come to our meetings and they offer advice, information and professional support.  They also sit on the Committee. We are always very pleased to see new members and welcome anyone from other Hospitals, who feel they need some support either from others with pacemakers or professional along with a cup of tea and biscuit.

 

Aims and Objectives

We offer support, friendship and education to people with a pacemaker or an ICD or those who are about to have one implanted.

 

  • We meet quarterly at the Medway Maritime Hospital.
  • We were set up to support pacemaker wearers but now also welcome those with ICDs.
  • We try and have speakers on a range of subjects.
  • At least one physiologist is always present in case of any queries e.g. articles about pacemakers in newspapers.
  • We ask for donations towards the cost of refreshments, we usually have a raffle and sometimes a bring and buy stall and we have raised money through donations to buy equipment for the hospital (monitors, event recorders and accessories).
  • We find that chatting to people with similar problems helps relieve the worries that people have when first receiving a pacemaker or ICD.
  • We always have a good time!
