A social care partnership has teamed up with a charity to increase awareness in Manchester
Marvellous Mentors is a patient-led educational programme that aims to improve heart failure diagnosis and treatment in Greater Manchester. It is the result of a collaboration between devolved healthcare provider Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership (GMHSCP) and the UK’s only heart failure patient support charity, Pumping Marvellous Foundation, with the aim of preventing 600 deaths from cardiovascular disease (CVD) in the locality by 2021.
