Feeling worried about your health, want to find out more about how to access support, or just need a friendly, listening ear? Our Advice Line nurses are here to help people living with chest, heart and stroke conditions, as well as their families, carers and healthcare workers.
The Advice Line service is free and confidential. Our specialist Advice Line nurses provide a qualified, supportive listening ear and all our health advice is based on current Scottish and UK medical guidelines. Here are just a few of the ways we can help:
“After my very first call, I felt so much better about myself”
Debbie from Perthshire had a stroke just after her 40th birthday and called our Advice Line for support.
Despite having her wonderful, supportive family around her, Debbie couldn’t help but feel isolated. She desperately wanted to talk to someone who understood what she was going through.
“After my very first call, I felt so much better about myself. It really was a lifeline for me and I know they’ve helped so many others through dark times,” says Debbie.
“The nurses are absolutely worth their weight in gold – I don’t know what I would’ve done without their help and their friendship. I would’ve been lost without them.”
