This year, on Saturday, March 23rd, Heart Valve Voice will hold a National Patient Day at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre Centenary Square. The day will be an opportunity for heart valve disease patients to come together from across the UK to learn, share and inspire one another.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been postponed and will now take place in June. Email email@example.com for more information.
Our National Patient Day will occur at Birmingham Repertory Theatre and will be the biggest gathering of UK heart valve disease patients ever. It's free to attend. So, complete the form at the bottom of the page or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, postcode and a summary of your valve disease experience, and a team member will get in touch.
On the day, we will have expert speakers from across the valve disease pathway, with clinicians, advocacy experts, MPs, global opinion leaders, celebrities and more.
Attendees will have the opportunity to share their experiences and learn how they and others can use their experience to improve the future treatment and care of heart valve disease.
The event will run from 12 pm until 3 pm, with light refreshments.
See below for further details of the days' plans:
Speeches from clinical opinion leaders about the latest Heart Valve Disease developments
Speech from Wil Woan, who will talk about the latest Heart Valve Voice projects and campaigns
Speech from our Patient Ambassadors about their lived experiences and how they've supported other patients
Opportunities to ask questions
We will then split into groups to discuss:
How can we use the Patient's Voice to raise awareness of the disease
How can we empower patients and clinicians to achieve truly shared decision making
How can we ensure patients can access the latest therapies
We will capture the day and share our findings with the media and the All-Party Political Group on Heart Valve Disease.
