British Heart Foundation is the nation’s heart charity, dedicated to saving lives through pioneering research, patient care, campaigning for change and by providing vital information. We are pleased to support the AllTrials initiative and its efforts to increase transparency in clinical trials. As a major funder of heart disease clinical studies, including ground-breaking work like the Heart Protection Study, we recognise the need to ensure patients and clinicians have confidence in the outcome of clinical trials. We have established our position in our response to the Science and Technology Select Committee’s inquiry on clinical trials. To find out more about our life-saving research funding visit
