The Norfolk Heart Trust was started by Norfolk cardiologists in 1990 to support investigation and treatment of heart disease, research and education in our region.

If you, a member of your family or a friend have been treated for heart disease at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, there is a good chance that the equipment has been donated by the Norfolk Heart Trust.

The Miracle Magnets for Hearts appeal is raising £1.5m for a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner which is capable of diagnose heart disease more accurately than x-ray tests or tubes inside the heart, completely changing how we can treat patients.

A Heart MRI saves lives and prevents unnecessary invasive assessments.

There is a need for a dedicated heart MRI in Norfolk region, with patients currently having to travel out of Norfolk for scans and faced with long waiting lists. Heart MRI is vital for high quality research in heart disease and will improve patient care and experience, enabling early diagnosis of heart disease to save lives.
