In April 2012, we worked with a number of other health charities to produce a report on depression amongst people living with long term physical health conditions. It's estimated that a fifth of people with long term conditions have depression, which can have a devastating impact on health and quality of life.
What we want
Every person with a long term physical health condition, like heart disease, should be treated for both their physical and psychological symptoms equally.
People should be able to access the information and services that will meet their physical or psychological needs, and we think this should form part of a good quality cardiac rehabilitation programme.
