Our Mission

Our Hope For Hearts misson.

Our Mission

Improve the awareness of aortic stenosis throughout the medical community and build better referral networks to make it easier to find those specialists that can help manage and treat patients.


Over recent decades there has been a rapid growth in medical innovation giving rise to subspecialty treatment options across many fields of medicine. While the growth of medical innovation has the potential to improve patient outcomes and the efficient use of healthcare resources, it also added complexity to the referral pathway. Referrers need to be up to date with the growing list of clinical guidelines, advanced treatment options and the sub-specialists most suited to help manage their patients’ specific needs.

The Hope for Hearts website and clinical content library has been developed to make it easier to access structural heart content to stay up to date, as well as find local specialists and hospital centres to help streamline the referral process.
