Many years ago it was rare for heart children to reach adulthood. Now we are delighted that most of our children will have a normal life expectancy. The Children’s Heart Association has chosen to expand to support adults who have grown with their heart condition.
We support the cardiac forum for adults in the North West, providing funds for meetings and social events. On the adult heart unit there isn’t WiFi so we have provided MiFi devices so our young people can stay connected to their friends in the outside world. CHD Adults and their families are welcome to join in with our events, and their experience is vital to those with young children who are just starting their journey with a heart condition.
CHA have been invited to join the team designing the new surgical service at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital in Liverpool. We are listening to what is important to those who will use the service to make sure the new centre is world class.
