Get Involved

We are always looking for people to volunteer and support our mission. There are lots of different ways that you can support us in lowering the unacceptably high rate of misdiagnosed aortic dissections and bring consistency to the whole treatment pathway. We wouldn’t be able to continue our work and activities without your help.

You could join us to host or lend your patient voice to a future education event, use us to provide patient and relative input into your research plans, or as a patient help shape aortic research projects in collaboration with the leading aortic centres in the UK and Ireland. If you would like to raise awareness of aortic dissection or help support our fundraising efforts then please let us know.

Please get involved and support the charity for aortic dissection today!

To lower the unacceptably high rate of misdiagnosed aortic dissections in A&E across the UK and Ireland

My brother who was 32, was treated for a heart attack, he went into hospital on a Friday and was kept there with no scans or specialist Doctors and died on the Sunday. This petition is so important.

He had told them my Grandad and Mom had died from an aneurysm and even then no one listened. Early diagnosis is crucial. How many others have lost their lives this way?
