We teamed up with HEART UK to run a patient advocacy workshop to look at how decisions are taken that affect the care of patients and the ways that those affected by the condition can help to ensure that the best decisions are made. We looked at the different ways that we can get involved, and ways to raise awareness of the impact that FCS has and the burden it puts on the lives of patients and all those around them.
