Patient information and support

The BHF produces hundreds of free leaflets, booklets and online resources to support your patients, their carers and families.

We cover heart conditions, tests and treatments, advice on making healthy lifestyle choices, plus information for people caring for someone with heart disease.

Our Heart Helpline is available for patients, carers or family members who want to speak to a cardiac nurse. We also run nearly 250 support groups across England and Wales.

Heart Matters is our award-winning magazine that your patients can receive for free.

And you can signpost your patients to our support programmes for young people with heart conditions.

Our simple guide to all the services we offer, You can count on us, is available to download or order now.
