NHS: we're "reviewing adult congenital heart services"

The NHS is reviewing adult congenital heart services to improve care for adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD) across the country. The NHS is continuing to engage with patients, families and clinicians on the proposed model of care and draft designation standards, which were developed by a multi-disciplinary expert advisory group.

All views are welcome during this engagement period. Any proposed changes will be consulted on fully before decisions are made.
