Petition The government and DWP to recognize cardiac conditions are disability's

I am calling on the Government to recognise heart failure and other cardiac conditions as disabilities, for the purposes of working out who is entitled to disability benefits, for to long heart conditions and the disability's that they cause have been ignored in the entitlement for certain benefits
