Changing the game for those threatened by heart disease

Cardiovascular disease affects us all. Every five minutes someone is admitted to a UK hospital due to a heart attack.

This is why Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity is proud to be a part of The Heart of West London Partnership. Together we are raising funds to change the game for those at risk of heart disease.

This partnership includes Brentford Football Club, Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity, Cardiac Risk in the Young, Resuscitation Council UK, Pablo London and A-K-A Day, all organisations that are working in communities to improve heart health and save lives.

One of the UK’s biggest killers

Cardiovascular disease is one of the UK’s biggest killers. Heart and circulatory diseases cause around a quarter of all deaths in the UK, which is one death every three minutes. 7.6m people are affected by cardiac health in the UK.

The people affected are not just the middle-aged and elderly; every week at least 12 people aged under 35 die from an undiagnosed heart condition.

We want to change this.

Our vision

Through raising awareness, encouraging exercise, promoting screenings, funding research and supporting families affected by cardiac conditions we will make a difference to the millions of people threatened by heart disease.
