Opportunities to shape BHF's work

group talking

We're committed to ensuring that people affected by heart and circulatory diseases and their risk factors have the opportunity to influence and shape our work.

Here you'll find out about the different ways you can get involved and share your experiences.

Help inform our clinical research funding decisions

Use your experiences of heart and circulatory conditions to help us decide what research we fund. This will be your chance to ensure the clinical research we fund are important and relevant to the needs of patients. If this sounds like the opportunity for you, join our Patient Advisory Group.

Help us develop our award winning resources

Work with us, using your experiences of heart and circulatory diseases and their risk factors, to ensure we're providing the information and support people need. Whether it's providing feedback online or face-to-face, we want to hear your thoughts.



The external opportunities that we advertise here are for information only. They are not related to BHF projects. If you choose to get involved, you will not be representing the BHF, but representing your own experiences as someone affected by heart and circulatory diseases.

Support a grant application for thoracic aortic stenting

This will be your chance to collaborate in applying for an NIHR grant and supporting the design of the trial.
