A charity that provides crucial support to people with coronary heart disease has praised a partnership approach that has led to the funding of a cardiac nurse.
Upbeat Heart Support has spoken of its gratitude after the intervention of Bury St Edmunds MP Jo Churchill (pictured above right) paved the way for almost £6,000 funding from WSCCG.
The money will pay for a cardiac nurse to work with the charity for one day a week for a whole year.
Dr Ed Garratt, WSCCG's chief officer (pictured above left), said: “Upbeat does a fantastic job in supporting those people who have had a heart attack or are living with heart-related health issues in west Suffolk.
“We are very glad to provide additional funding."
