MPs support heart plan

MPs were out in force for the launch of the Cardio & Vascular Coalition's new plan outlining how the Government should approach the fight against cardiac and vascular disease.

The CVC is a group of 41 charities representing patients, charities doctors and nurses.

Its report - Destination 2020 - calls for a plan in England which will incorporate coronary heart disease but also related conditions such as stroke, diabetes and kidney disease.

Yesterday more than 60 MPs pledged their support (including Peter Hain, pictured) while over 125,000 people have signed our petiton.
