HASTE's (Heart and Stroke Trust Endeavour) objectives are the prevention, early detection and treatment of heart disease and stroke, the two leading causes of death in the United Kingdom.

In the UK every day many of us have our own ‘natural disaster’. It’s called heart disease and stroke. Together these diseases cause havoc, death and destruction with consequences that cause suffering and anguish for many years to the victims and their families.

Effective methods to investigate and treat these conditions, and to educate the public as well as health professionals, can reduce their impact.
