"My wife has a husband for longer, my children have a dad for longer and my grandchildren have a granddad for longer."


John and his family know how vital it is to have the best possible care close to hand. John underwent triple heart bypass surgery in July and knows he owes his life to the Bristol Heart Institute.

The team discovered that John’s heart wasn’t functioning properly after he had chest pains. Two arteries were completely blocked and the other one was very narrow so surgery was needed and fast.

“I cannot thank my consultant Mr Bryan, his team and all the support staff enough for what they have done for me. I was presented with my new grandson who was born in September, three weeks early. Without the Bristol Heart Institute I may never have seen him.”

Advances in patient care transforms lives and aids recovery

The Bristol Heart Institute Appeal has been launched to ensure that we all feel the benefit from advances in patient care. The hospital needs state-of-the-art scanning equipment and heart imaging facilities to remain at the forefront of keyhole surgery.

Jenny Anstey, Matron, says: "People from across the South West directly benefit from having specialist cardiac services on their doorstep and your help with the Bristol Heart Institute Appeal will enable us to push the boundaries of innovation even further for future provision of care."
