This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) has announced the signing of an agreement that will provide significant funding for cardiac equipment, research and training. Under the deal, the charity will receive an expected £215,000 in annual donations from Candis Club magazine. Over the next twelve months, the funding will be used to purchase eight defibrillators, at a total cost of £20,000 ($31,300), and promote the charity's research and training funding programmes. The BHF recently announced plans to part fund the purchase of portable ultrasound scanners, in a bid to boost early diagnosis of heart failure where full echocardiography is not needed. It also provided funding for 20 two-year echocardiography training posts. The BHF is the UK's largest independent funder of heart disease research.
