Heart Failure Awareness Days

Taking place from 29 April to 5 May 2024

Heart Failure

Heart Failure Awareness Days (HFAD) are held every year in May. Join your National Heart Failure Society and Working Groups in organising events to raise awareness about the importance of recognising heart failure symptoms early, getting an accurate diagnosis and receiving optimal treatment.

Heart Failure Awareness Days 2024

This year, HFA Awareness Days will take place from 29 April to 5 May 2024.

The theme is "Detect the undetected: FIND ME"*, focusing on individuals who remain undiagnosed and emphasising the significance of early intervention, which can have a profound impact on improving lives and outcomes. The objective of the 25in25 initiative is to decrease mortality rates attributed to heart failure within the initial year of diagnosis by 25% over the course of the next 25 years.


 *in support of the BSH 25in25 initiative, more information is available from the British Society of Heart Failure.
