The British Cardiac Patients Association

  Founded in 1982 the BCPA has provided valuable support to cardiac patients via individual membership of the Association, Area Groups, bi-monthly Journal, Helpline and one-to-one support. Visiting patients in hospital has been of help to many awaiting surgery.

  In the earlier years of cardiac surgery many patients valued the support of a local network. Along with advances in both medication and surgery patients are also able to get information and support via the web and other means.

  It is therefore a decision of the BCPA Trustees that the Association will formally be closed on the 28th February 2021.
