Patients with damage due to heart attacks are being offered a £10,000 procedure by a charity whereby their own stem cells from their bone marrow are extracted and injected into their hearts, to improve heart function and energy levels, and extend life expectancy, a treatment not currently available from the NHS.

Heart Cells Foundation was started by London businessman Ian Rosenberg in 2003, after he was given two months to live and had to travel to Germany for the procedure. He died, having had three extra years, in 2006 and the work of his charity is continued by his wife Jenifer Rosenberg OBE.
