Sports events: check-ups
We are undertaking heart valve disease check-up events in partnership with a variety of football and cricket clubs across the UK. These events provide an opportunity for fans to have their hearts listened to by a healthcare professional whilst they are watching their favourite team or sport. We also offer check-ups to members of the sports team and employees too. Find out more...

Practical Guidance for Primary Care
Our guidance has been developed by our GP faculty to help GPs with diagnosis and referrals of patients with heart valve disease. The GP guidance is the first of its kind to discuss heart valve disease, offering practical advice on the timely assessment and appropriate treatment of the disease by GPs, including step-by-step instructions on diagnosis, examination and referral.
Heart Health Survey
We first commissioned a heart health survey in 2014. As a follow-up to our original survey, Heart Valve Voice recently commissioned a new survey among over 60s in the UK to understand awareness levels of heart valve disease; and how many over 60s are concerned about the condition. By examining results and comparing them with results in other European countries, the group was able to define the key areas to address in terms of support and education. More information
