COVID-19 and the heart

Help fund our vital research

We have set up a project looking at how the heart is being affected by the COVID-19 virus, by using ultrasound. Please read all about the project and how you can help on our fundraising page

Who we are

Our busy Cardiac Research Unit is found in the Cardiology department at Northwick Park Hospital, working along side the clinical teams to improve our treatment of heart disease. While our department specialises in researching methods of the imaging of the heart using ultrasound, we also have several clinical trials going on at any one time in our various interest areas.

We pride ourselves in the quality of our research, and all funding received goes directly into our research projects.

Our Interest Areas

Heart Attack

Heart Failure
