Meetings & Programme of Events

Venue & Meeting Format

Meeting Venue - As from September 18th 2013, our evening meetings will be held at Marie Curie Hospice, West Midlands, Marsh Lane, Solihull, West Midlands B91 2PQ. We will be meeting in the excellent conference suite on the first floor of this superb new facility (lifts available). Ample parking available very close to main entrance.

If you have transport difficulties getting to a meeting, then we may be able to help.

We meet at 7:15 pm till 9:00 pm  usually  on the  THIRD Wednesday of the month  (subject to venue availability).

The usual format for our meetings is that we take tea/coffee on arrival, have a chat with fellow members and then just before 8:00 pm we assemble for announcements and for a talk by a guest speaker with a short time for questions.

Topics for the meeting alternate between medical and non-medical subjects. The medical topics are discussed at a level suitable for everyone to learn more about heart conditions and their treatment. We sometimes have talks on related health conditions too.

Prior to the close of the meeting, there is a raffle draw and the prizes are donated by members in order to help boost the Group’s available funds.


Current Programme

The dates are shown below for you to put in diary. The provisional list of speakers and topics is given below.

Unfortunately, sometimes a booked speaker is unable to attend at short notice and the Group attempts to provide a suitable alternative.
