Women in Bexley living with a heart condition can benefit from a new online hub.

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) has set up its first virtual Women’s Room to raise awareness of heart disease. Through the online forum, women can share their experiences and find support from others.

Maureen Talbot, a senior cardiac nurse at the BHF, said: “Coronary heart disease kills nearly three times as many women as breast cancer. Yet as a society we continue to prop up the myth that heart problems are just for men.”
