On 10 February 2015 the Heartbeat Cardiac Centre officially opened their new centre which is the former National Football Museum premises in Deepdale at the Preston North End grounds.

The proceedings were started by ‘Bollywood comes to Hearbeat’ with the ABHI NANDANA dance group while refreshments were served to all the guests in attendance. Vintage DJ and dancers, A Train Swing’ provided entertainment of a dance demo from the golden age of swing.
The Gillian Redman Gym was also opened by Rose Redman on the first floor. The gym was so called from the name of the late daughter of Heartbeat founders, Keith and Rose Redman, who sadly lost her to heart disease in 1978.Guided tours of the Heartbeat Centre were conducted, with demonstrations and taster sessions on the equipment.

With a gathering of all guests in the reception area there was an introduction of key speakers followed by the formal opening of the centre by the Mayor and Mayoress of Preston and ITV’s Good Morning Britain presenter, Ranvir Singh, who gave an account of how heart disease affected her family, in particular, her father Rattan who died of a heart attack at the age of 42; it was because of this that Ranvir did not hesitate to be at the opening when invited by Heartbeat CEO, Jill Rogerson.
Key speakers for the occasion were, leading local cardiologist Somnath Kumar, Chief executive of Preston City Council, Lorraine Norris, Finance director Preston North End FC, Kevin Abbott and Heartbeat Cardiac Centre CEO, Jill Rogerson.
