HART are a group of local residents who provide support to the Sussex Ambulance Service NHS Trust by responding early to serious medical and other life threatening conditions, including Heart Attacks, Drowning, Unconsciousness and Severe Bleeding The current 7 Responders, together with HART's founder, Dave Fletcher (in blue) are shown above. Responders, who are trained by the Sussex Ambulance Service do not replace the ambulance service but at their request, attend the scene prior to the ambulance arrival thus reduce the delay of providing skills such as Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation and Defibrillation. You can donate to HART through the HART BTmyDonate page.

Been diagnosed with Diabetes? Wondering where to go from here? Come and talk to us at your local Diabetes UK support group for people with Diabetes. This new group provides support in your area for anyone with diabetes and their families/carers. Membership is free. Welcome Do come and Join us We feel the need to get together for mutual support and sharing of our knowledge to help us in dealing with our diabetes; while there is generally something that we can do about our health, the motivation to do so can come and go, and if we combine we think we shall be able to encourage one another, and do better together. We would like a group that is welcoming to all. There is also much to be done to spread the word to people who are not yet aware that they have diabetes, and need to take action to protect their health. We have begun to work with local Diabetic and Practice Nurses in developing services for people diagnosed with diabetes. The previous group also achieved much for people with diabetes by raising money to be spent on them nationally, and that would be a useful ambition for us to have. We now have a busy committee, and have planned a public meeting in Worthing, as well as some fund raising events. We do hope you will be willing to join us, and that we shall be able to enjoy getting together. Your involvement will be welcomed. The West Sussex Downs Group covers the following areas: BN5: Henfield BN11-15: Worthing, Ferring, Findon, Sompting, & Shoreham BN43-44: Upper Beeding & Steyning RH20: Pulborough, Storrington, & West Chiltington. Temporarily we are looking after postcodes RH5 and RH11-15. We are providing support only until a new Horsham group has been created.
