Online service aims to get to the heart of those having surgery

A new online information hub has been launched to offer reassurance and advice to people going through heart surgery.

Developed in partnership with Bupa and The Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery (SCTS), the website gives patients, families and carers reliable information from experts following heart surgery all the way through from the first appointment to recovery.

Dr Steve Iley, Bupa UK Medical Director said: “This website will be a great resource for anyone wanting a human approach to what can be a difficult procedure to understand, with evidence-based information in one place, taking people from first appointment through to surgery and recovery.
