The Aortic Dissection Charitable Trust is the UK and Ireland charity uniting patients, families and the medical community in a shared goal of improving diagnosis, increasing survival and reducing disability due to aortic dissection.
We are bringing consistency of treatment across the whole patient pathway through:
- Increased access to education for medical professionals and patients in the UK & Ireland
- Working with those responsible for healthcare policy in the UK & Ireland to ensure that there is consistency in the provision of diagnosis for acute aortic dissection, specialised follow-up for survivors and access to clinical genetics for relatives
- Promoting funding for medical research into the detection, prevention, treatment and cure for aortic dissection
We rely on donations and fundraising to fund our work. Your help fundriasing is critical to our work and greatly appreciated. Together, we can achieve incredible things to improve the lives of patients and their families.
