About Heart Failure

Heart Failure is a life-threatening condition in which the heart cannot pump enough blood around the body. It affects approximately 1 million people in the UK and 64 million people worldwide. It is a chronic disease where around half of patients will die within five years of diagnosis.

HF mortality risk is worse than some of the most common cancers (prostate, breast, and bladder cancer). It is the leading cause of hospitalisation for those over the age of 65 and represents a significant clinical and economic burden.
