Safe & Sustainable Review



Overview
You may have heard that there were plans to review the children's cardiac services across the UK. Currently there are 11 children s cardiac units across the country.  During this review, 4 options were laid out to reduce the number of units to 6 or 7. Southampton was one of the units that faced closure. The paediatric units treat children from birth to 17 years old.


We are delighted with the announcement that the future of children’s heart surgery at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust has been guaranteed. For the full statement please see http://www.uhs.nhs.uk/AboutTheTrust/Newsandpublications/Latestnews/2012/Childrensheartsurgeryannouncement.aspx

Thank you for all your support and contribution to the campaign to help save Southampton!
