Karnil Singh Nagra donates money to cardiac rehabilitation unit
A HEART patient impressed with the care received at Good Hope Hospital has decided to give back to the place he was treated – donating £300 to the unit to help other patients just like him.
Karnil Singh Nagra, 67, from Sutton Coldfield, suffered a heart attack whilst in India in 2009 and as a result had to have a coronary angioplasty operation on his main coronary artery.
On his return to the UK, he was referred to Good Hope’s cardiac rehabilitation unit, where the team put him on a specialised exercise programme and a ten week programme in health education.
Mr Nagra said, “It has always been a hobby of mine to fundraise since childhood. I wanted to raise money for the unit so that more people can help and encourage donations.
“They all look after me and I am so very proud of them all.”
Steve Padmore, exercise physiologist said, “We are incredibly grateful for the impressive donation Mr Nagra has given to the unit. We are a busy unit and can often see up to 60 patients in one day, so Mr Nagra’s kind donation will help towards purchasing additional exercise equipment for our cardiac patients.
