Professor Philip Poole-Wilson

Welcome to the Gift of Hope Heart Fund, set up by the British Heart Foundation in memory of Professor Philip Poole-Wilson. He has been described as the leader of his generation internationally, in cardiac research and the treatment of heart failure, much loved for his exuberance, intellectual rigour, tireless energy, scholarship and selfless teaching and guidance.

Adored by his patients, his NHS outpatient clinic at the Royal Brompton Hospital was always over-subscribed, yet he never had time to do any private practice. He gave his life for his work, dying suddenly and unexpectedly, aged 65 of a heart attack on his way to give a lecture, in March 2009. Please click here to read The Times obituary for Professor Poole-Wilson.

The Fund aims to support the founding of a new chair in cardiology, in the name of Philip Poole-Wilson, by the British Heart Foundation. I hope you will support this special BHF fund, they do more than any other charitable organisation to keep the nation's hearts beating.  Please make an online donation, if possible, however small or large, but please be aware AMEX cards are not accepted. If you would prefer, please post a cheque to the British Heart Foundation in Philip's memory (adding a Gift Aid form if possible) to:-
