Project Description

Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is a major chronic condition characterised by the inability of the heart to pump sufficient blood through the body.

According to the British Heart Foundation and Stats Wales, 32,000 people live with heart failure in Wales and more than 500,000 people in the UK.

In the UK, up to £11 billion is spent each year relating to cardiovascular diseases, which is expected to increase substantially not only in the UK but also in other countries such as the US. CHF readmissions is one of the major contributors to this burgeoning cost. Readmissions, defined as a subsequent hospital admission within 30 days following an original admission, has become a major burden on the many healthcare systems.

Knowledge Economy Skills Scholarships 2 (KESS2) is a pan-Wales higher-level skills initiative led by Bangor University on behalf of the Higher Education sector in Wales.

Applicants must:
•have a home or work address in the West Wales and the Valleys region at the time of their application for KESS funding and their enrolment for the course of study
•have a legal right to live and work in the UK for the duration of the KESS2 support, and the right to take up paid work in the WWV region on completion of the scholarship
•be classified as a ‘home’ or ‘EU’ student.

Funding Notes
