The Pumping Marvellous Foundation (PMF) is the UK’s patient-led Heart Failure charity. It was founded by a heart failure patient whose experiences whilst rehabilitating have shaped the Foundation’s goals and principles of a patient-centric charity focused on improved patient outcomes. These include helping people live better with heart failure through education and peer to peer support whilst advocating for heart failure patients at a national level across the 4 nations. We also work delivering patients insights at a European and Global level.
Why Is Your Support So Important?
The much-missed, marvelous patient educator Rob, explains the very real impact of our charity and the vital support for patients and their families enabled by your contributions and support.
We offer support to sufferers of heart failure, their carers, and family. We support them by talking through problems and by sharing their challenges. We feel as though we can reduce the burden of heart failure to both the person with it and their family. We supply 100,000 pieces of patient information across a rolling 12 month period to NHS teams to distribute to patients and their families.
We represent the opinions and needs of heart failure patients across the UK. We give the patient a voice where representation is needed, at the top table. We demonstrate the needs of patients via patients through their experiences.
We offer patients and families help on how to self-manage their heart failure through coaching and developing them through the peaks and troughs of managing heart failure.
We work with clinicians and decision-makers as to how the patient voice can improve care for people suffering from heart failure.
We work with all stakeholders in heart failure to ensure that the patient's needs around access to the latest therapies are heard. We work towards universal access to the best medications and interventions.
Awareness is key to increasing the quality of care for people suffering from heart failure as without awareness then we feel that heart failure doesn’t have the voice its impact warrants.
Support us to continue helping people and their families live better with heart failure - help us raise the funds we need.
