Compassionate Unit

Compassionate Treatment Programme – The first of its kind

2016 saw the opening of a new and revolutionary Compassionate Treatment Unit for Heart Disease funded by the Heart Cells Foundation.

The dedicated Stem Cell Programme is the only centre in the country to treat patients with heart disease based on compassionate grounds using their own Stem Cells. Each patient will spend approximately one week in the unit. To be considered, patients must be referred by a Cardiologist.

The Compassionate Treatment Unit is running within the renowned St Bartholomew’s Hospital, headed by Professor Anthony Mathur, Consultant Cardiologist and Director of Interventional Cardiology at St Bartholomew’s Health Centre.

The Compassionate Treatment Unit is possible because of the Heart Cells Foundation research programme which has been in place over the last 14 years and the outstanding results achieved .
