British Heart Valve Society (BHVS)
The influence and importance of valve disease is increasing and yet the subject remains under-represented. The British Heart Valve Society was therefore formed at the start of 2010. Its purpose is to improve the care of patients with heart valve disease within the British Isles by increasing awareness and knowledge.
Membership is open to all disciplines involved with the science and clinical care of heart valve disease. This includes, in alphabetical order: bioengineers, cardiac nurses, cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, general practitioners, geneticists, haematologists, health economists, managers, microbiologists, pathologists, physiologists, public health physicians, and sonographers.
