About BHF Scotland Every month, more than 1,300 people in Scotland will lose their lives to cardiovascular disease and 26 babies will be born with a heart defect. That’s why the fight for every heartbeat must go on. We’re working hard across Scotland to raise the funds we need to continue our life saving research. We’re supporting people living with heart disease and working to reduce the heart health risks of future generations. Find out more about the ground-breaking research funded by our supporters.
