We spent 71 per cent of our budget on research in 2011/12We gave £88 million to heart science researchers in 2011/12Our scientists are fighting for every heartbeat

For babies born with heart defects to the millions of adults affected by heart disease, our scientists are carrying the fight for every heartbeat into the future.
