The Staffordshire and South Cheshire AAA Screening Programme has been supported from its outset by the Stoke City Football Club and its ex-players. This led to the formation of  ‘SAVE Charity’ – (Staffordshire Aneurysm Vascular and Endovascular) as part of UHNS Charity to help serve patients with vascular disease, particularly patients with Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms

Mr Pherwani enjoys providing surgical vascular access for hemodialysis for particularly disadvantaged patients from under-privileged areas in Seychelles and India, and training surgeons in these areas to provide these services.
