Equipment bought by BHM
This is a list of donations and equipment which where bought or part funded by Beating Hearts Malta. Equipment is donated to Mater Dei Hospital and donations are given via Bursaries to health care professionals. BHM consults with the Mater Dei Hospital Cardiology Department doctors and consultants, in order to identify equipment which is needed, its cost and which equipment models are best procured. The same is done for the award of Bursaries.
From the year 2019, Beating Hearts Malta started allocating € 2400.00 per year towards bursaries. The aim of this initiative is to assist healthcare professionals based at Mater Dei Hospital to attend local and international courses, conferences and meetings directly related to adult and paediatric cardiology. This is done by means of 4 annual bursaries of Euro 600 each.
In January 2022, Beating Hearts Malta launched the Travel Support Scheme This scheme is aimed at providing eligible patients and their families with financial support when travelling to an overseas specialist cardiac center.
