2011 Safe and Sustainable Children's Heart Surgery Services Public Consultation Events

The Safe and Sustainable children’s congenital cardiac services review team published a Pre Consultation Business Case document in February 2011.

In the words of the programme team:


“This document sets out recommendations for a superior congenital heart service for the children of England and Wales – a service that is safe and sustainable.

The recommendations are the outcome of a robust review process that has been clinically led and supported by the relevant professional associations and national parent groups.  There is an overwhelming feeling that the time for change is long overdue.”
