British Heart Foundation Cymru were delighted to attend MediWales Connects Conference in Swansea University in 2018. It was an extremely professionally organised event which gave us excellent opportunities to network and engage with key influential delegates. We were able to share examples of BHF funded innovative clinical practice with colleagues from NHS Wales but also learn from research and industry partners on potential new solutions to support ongoing and future service improvement for those at risk of and who suffer with cardiovascular disease. We will definitely be attending again this year as an organisation and are keen to continue to benefit from all the collaborative opportunities that this conference offers.
