Patient Portraits: A New You Photography Competition

After almost a year in the making, the winners of the The Patient Portraits: A New You Photography Competition have been announced.

In an exhibition hosted by heart valve disease survivor and MP Steve McCabe at the Houses of Parliament the photos were revealed and the winners announced. Participating photographers, their model patients, clinicians and family members were on hand to peruse the photographic documentaries and celebrate the amazing work accomplished over this past year.

The images depicted life from the valve disease patient’s perspective and showed how many patients with heart valve disease can go on to live full and high quality lives after treatment. The patients who were featured came from all walks of life, a range of ages and all enjoy a multitude of activities from cycling and swimming to teaching piano, gardening and chasing after their grandchildren.
