14th April 2021 – #ADADUK21 Announcement and Press Release:

#ADADUK21

National patient association Aortic Dissection Awareness UK & Ireland today announced that the honour of hosting Aortic Dissection Awareness Day UK 2021 has been awarded to The Bristol Aortic Service. The Association’s flagship annual event will take place on Thursday 16th September at the Bristol County Cricket Ground, when the theme will be ‘Responding to the Challenge of Acute Aortic Dissection’.

Announcing the award, Chair of the national patient association, Mr. Gareth Owens, said: ‘Each year we aim to recognise an Aortic centre that is doing excellent work in the field of Aortic Dissection and improving diagnosis and treatment for patients affected by this cruel disease, which kills more people in the UK than road traffic accidents. The Bristol Aortic Service, which spans two NHS trusts in the city, has impressed us with their teamwork across the Emergency Department, Radiology, Cardiac Surgery, Vascular Surgery and Cardiology, which has transformed the AD patient pathway and saved many lives. We want to highlight Bristol as an example of how the NHS should tackle the challenge of acute Aortic Dissection nationally’.

AD Awareness Day UK 2021, generously sponsored by Terumo Aortic, is an invitation-only event which approximately 200 patients, relatives, senior healthcare professionals and policy-makers will attend in Bristol. The event will also be livestreamed online to a global audience.
