Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke
Cardiac Support




Often it can help to meet people who have also been through the same experiences as yourself. NICHS aims to provide support to people with heart conditions and their carers by providing support to the work being undertaken by the Northern Ireland Cardiac Services Network and the largely self governing Cardiac Support Groups in your local area.

In addition to these groups we also have a Taking Control Self Management Programme, which provides education and training for those living with any long term condition, including heart conditions to improve the quality of life.


NICHS has some generic support groups which are for people with cardiac conditions, as well as respiratory or stroke conditions.
