Heart to Heart – Heart Surgery Patient Support Group

“One of the greatest gifts a person can give another is support.”


Heart to Heart is a heart surgery patient support program run by The Baird Institute, providing education and support to patients, families, carers and friends.

The Baird Institute’s mission is to foster research and apply science to improve the outcomes of patients facing heart or lung surgery. This program focuses upon the power of bringing people with heart disease together, to share their experiences and by so doing, to support one another pre and post surgery.

Our plan is to formalise this group and have an education and support meeting in Sydney for people who need or have had surgery and for their family, carers and friends.
