The Heart

How well do you know your own body? How it functions, what might go wrong and what could possibly be done about it?

A pilot study, arranged by David Beesan, together with Dr Tim James and Hilary Eddy, is now underway; the aim being to show how the body should function and what might fail to some degree.

The first session took place on the 23rd November at Hurstbourne Priors village hall.

Further details of this pilot study will be issued in due course.
