An important new charitable fund in Essex

Essex is blessed with some of the world’s leading cardiovascular clinicians providing cutting edge treatment from a superb Cardiovascular Centre in Basildon. The Essex Heart Fund Charity has been established to provide long term care for local patients and to support research into new and innovative lifesaving treatments.

The main functions of the Fund are:

 To provide ongoing post-treatment support for patients & families through follow up calls, interest groups, seminars & education.

 To encourage and develop lifesaving research into causes, diagnosis and treatments of heart conditions and diseases.

 To provide vital grants to voluntary organisations working with cardiac patients in the community.

The initiative to set up EHF has come directly from the Clinicians involved and will benefit the whole of the county.





Supporting Essex patients in the community

Many heart conditions present with little warning. Being rushed to hospital for emergency treatment can be stressful for patients and their families. Returning home and resuming normal life can also be difficult.

We want to help by supporting local patient groups in the community. In addition we are developing Programmes where hospital staff contact patients in the weeks following discharge to provide additional support.
