Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN 20412, tabled on 22 June 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many people in Northern Ireland have been diagnosed with heart valve disease in the last three years; and if he will have discussions with the British Heart Foundation to raise awareness of the risks and prevention of that disease.

We do not hold the data for Northern Ireland as this is a devolved matter.

NHS England and NHS Improvement are working in partnership with the British Heart Foundation to raise awareness of heart valve disease, ensuring that the disease is diagnosed early, enabling patients to get the treatment they need.
