The British Heart Foundation says that although heart attack deaths in Wales are falling, there is little evidence that heart failure deaths are also decreasing.

We're undergoing an unprecedented period of change when it comes to heart health in Wales.
It is pleasing that decades of British Heart Foundation funded research has contributed to the dramatic fall in heart attack deaths over recent years. But this means that more and more people are surviving heart attacks with damaged hearts and there is now an urgent need to find ways of reversing that damage.
