Machines to detect life-threatening heart defects in newborn babies given to hospitals

A baby is born with a serious heart condition every two hours in the UK.

Since her baby son Tommy died, Natasha Pye has been campaigning for new technology that can detect heart defects in babies, called pulse oximetry machines.

They have been supplied to fifteen hospitals in Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire by the charity, Tiny Tickers.
