Heartbeat has a new CEO!

Congratulations Louise!

Heartbeat are delighted to announce the appointment of Louise Bache as the new CEO of Heartbeat.

Louise has worked for Heartbeat since November 2011 as service development manager and during the last year she has been covering the post of CEO during Jill’s unfortunate illness. She worked in the leisure industry for over 14 years starting as a gym instructor and culminating with the role of contract manager responsible for 4 leisure centres and over 200 staff.

Louise is very excited to take on this new challenge to expand our reach throughout the North West, identify and strengthen our existing networks and develop a culture of togetherness, support and peer education.

It’s our 40th Birthday!

Heartbeat have been caring for and rehabilitating people of the North West for 40 years!

Heartbeat was founded in 1978 by Keith and Rose Redman who sadly lost their teenage daughter, Gillian, to heart disease.

Keith and Rose recognised the need to develop support and enhanced rehabilitation for people affected by heart disease post hospital discharge.

This pioneering approach to cardiac rehabilitation has provided support to thousands of people over Heartbeat’s 40 year history.

We have a huge goal of raising an additional £40k, we would like you to be part of our celebrations.

Keep your eye on our website over the up and coming months!
