Support Group Activities
The FH Support Group has been developing steadily over the past 12 months. Some of the major achievements 2010 include the following:
• A donation pledge has been attracted from the Society of Ambulance Paramedic Students (SOAPS); the donation should take place towards the end of 2010 after the SOAPS have completed their fundraising activities.
• The FH PSG has assisted with the development of a nationally accepted model of care for the diagnosis and management of FH.
• Met with Maurice Swanson (Chief Executive of the WA branch of the National Heart Foundation), and he has offered support to the FH PSG; namely by raising awareness through their channels, and offering office space, phone line etc in their building if desired at some point in the future.
• Met with Michael Livingston (Director of HeartUK) who is now affiliated with the group. Michael has been providing guidance on the development of a national association for FH; the PSG would form an integral part of such an association.
