Hundreds die each year from an undiagnosed heart condition – that’s hundreds too many. A simple ECG (electrocardiogram) will identify most cardiac abnormalities so that conditions can be managed.
Welsh Hearts are pleased to be funding such a vital and life saving initiative. It is our mission to help protect and promote the heart health of young people here in Wales. Many people still associate heart disease and heart attacks with older people, however this is sadly not the case. But with screening we can make a massive difference and we will save lives.
Let’s get every young heart screened (Aged 8-45)
Each session costs us £6500 to hold. Private heart screenings can cost around £300 per person, but due to generous donations from our supporters, you will only pay £65. We currently hold separate sessions for 8-17's and 18-45 year olds. We cannot hold these heart screening sessions without generous donations of money to help support our work. Can you donate today to help us save lives in Wales?
Welsh Hearts has launched a petition to call on the Welsh Government to roll out a heart screening programme to all young people between 10 and 35 in Wales. The petition has now ended. Any updates regarding the status of our petition will be posted here.
