Anyone with an interest in children's heart services is being
encouraged to have their say on how children's heart services are
organised in England, following a national review and the
recommendation of four options.
In February, the Safe and Sustainable review panel recommended
four options for public consultation and Bristol Royal Hospital for
Children has been included in all four options.
The period of public consultation on these options is now
underway. A public consultation event will be held at:
Taunton Racecourse on 7 June 2011 from 3-5pm
Dr Jackie Cornish, Head of the Division of Women's and
Children's Services, says:
"We are delighted that Bristol Royal Hospital for Children has
been included in all four options and that the high quality of our
services, the dedication and commitment of our staff and the
outcomes for our patients have been recognised this way.
"We want to encourage as many people to come along as possible.
If you or someone you know is interested in or has been affected by
heart services at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children please do
give your feedback."
Please come along and show your support for Bristol Royal
Hospital for Children. You must register in advance by phone
0845 363 1478 or register online at www.specialisedservices.nhs.uk/safeandsustainable
For information and to have a say on the consultation, which
runs until 1 July 2011, visit the Review of Children's Congenital
