British Heart Foundation Cymru
Type of organisation: Charities
Every month almost 800 people will lose their lives to CVD(cardiovascular disease)in Wales, and from that number more than 200 will be under 75. That’s why the fight for every heartbeat must go on.
We’re working hard across Wales to raise funds for our life saving research, support people living with heart disease, and to reduce the heart health risks of future generations.
We work closely with the Welsh Government, National Assembly for Wales, Local Government, Health Boards and other Welsh organisations to advise them on health policy and developments in heart and circulatory disease.
We are focusing on championing prevention through tobacco restriction and air pollution reduction,improving access to learning CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and improving survival from out of hospital cardiac arrest, influencing improved quality care for people at risk of or who live with heart conditions in Wales whilst ensuring CVD is seen as a priority by government and the NHS.
