Top service innovation resources

The BHF is committed to finding new and innovative ways of delivering and supporting the best possible care for patients with cardiovascular disease.

We want to ensure the best evidence-based services are put into practice, and we want to help healthcare professionals and commissioners all over the UK to do the same. That's why we have organised several pilot programmes with the NHS directly relevant to caring for patients with cardiovascular disease and high-risk conditions.
