Heart Failure Charity
Heart Failure is a condition that affects nearly 1 million people in the UK. This figure doesn’t include the many carers and families that have to manage heart failure on a daily basis. In Europe there are 15 million people affected by Heart Failure and globally up to 27 million people that we know about. Prognosis is often poor and symptoms are debilitating. People who have heart failure not only have to manage the physical symptoms but also ave to wrestle with the psychological impact of the condition. There is a lack of focus, engagement and action around the tsunami of problems heart failure presents for health economies.
The Pumping Marvellous Foundation is the UK’s patient driven Heart Failure Charity. It was founded by Nick Hartshorne-Evans who at 39 was diagnosed with Heart Failure after a viral attack on his heart. He was dismayed that there was not a Heart Failure Charity focussed on the needs of the patient. He set the group up to advocate and provide help and support for people having to manage their Heart Failure along with their carers and families. The Heart Failure Charity the Pumping Marvellous Foundation is led and driven by it’s Patient Board and guided by it’s world class Heart Failure specialists on it’s Clinical Board.
