What is PHocus2021

Who are we?

PHocus2021 is made up of:

  • A Steering Committee comprised of representatives of the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA UK), plus leading medical professionals in the field of PH, academia and general practice
  • A special ‘Patient Panel’ made up of patients, carers and family members
  • Political relations experts, Decideum Health, who are supporting PHocus2021 to achieve its strategic objectives and make an impact

“The lack of transparency and proper consultation with senior figures within clinical and patient communities has led to the PHA UK leaving NHS England and setting up PHocus2021 to exert scrutiny onto a broken system –  and to demand more for PH patients by pushing for change.”

Iain Armstrong, Co-Chair of PHocus2021 and Chair of PHA UK
