Volunteer Regional Patient Representatives

Somerville Heart Foundation is establishing the roles of two regional representatives at each of the specialist Level One Heart Centres.

  • Represent patients on local planning groups or national groups when appropriate
  • Raise awareness using local and national media
  • Support fundraising locally
