BHF communications team

British Heart Foundation

The British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) communications team has been integral to the charity achieving its strategic objectives and has led the way in innovative campaigning and storytelling through three core goals: growing support and income, enhancing reputation for lifesaving research, and influencing improvements in care.

Through hard-hitting campaigns and sharing the news of research breakthroughs, the BHF’s communications team has grown the charity’s voice to become the second-most talked about health charity in the media, securing thousands of pieces of press coverage, converting exposure to donations. The team has been a driving force in calling for an urgent plan to address the heart care crisis and NHS backlogs, securing nearly 1,000 pieces of coverage. Its press office has responded to monthly statistics, and it has launched multiple reports to highlight the issues.
