The PH professionals group is made of up of healthcare professionals dealing day to day with patients suffering from Pulmonary Hypertension.
The Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA UK) is a national support network that helps patients, their family and carers and NHS professionals too. It is committed to its values of integrity, hope and influence.
From its launch in the year 2000, the PHA UK has now grown to over 4,500 members. Its community is like no other; a unique group of people committed to supporting each other and raising awareness of this serious condition in the hope of one day, finding a cure.
The charity works to:
Support people affected PH to enjoy a better quality of life
Raise awareness of PH to encourage understanding and earlier diagnosis
Provide research grants to academic and healthcare professionals to improve the way PH is treated and managed
Carry out its own research to understand the needs of people affected by PH
Organise its own training for healthcare professionals to obtain the specialist skills required to treat people with PH
Provide a platform for the patient voice to be heard loud and clear
