What is the Advice Line?

The Advice Line is here to answer your questions and offer a listening ear to anyone affected by chest, heart or stroke illness.

Our specialist Advice Line nurses provide confidential advice and support to people living with chest, heart and stroke conditions, their relatives and carers.

Here you'll find details on how you can contact the Advice Line plus information on who we are and how we are accredited.

You can also read the latest news or download the Advice Line Service Flyer (see Related Documents on the right) for more information.
