The impact of the first wave of COVID-19 on those with lifelong conditions: a case study of congenital heart disease

CHF has been involved, alongside other heart-charities in the CHAMPION study, the first part of which looked at the impact of COVID-19 on adults and children with heart conditions.

CHF ran an online forum in a closed Facebook group where parents could answer a series of questions and also debate with each other.

The results of the first part of the forum which dealt with the impact of COVID-19 has now been written up as a report, the pre-published version can be downloaded by clicking on the image below.
