If you live anywhere that this unit serves ( a wide area ) or anywhere for that matter and are willing to show support to stop it's closure please sign the petition. Links below to Childrens Heart Surgry Fund ( CHSF ) and direct link to Petition page. I am posting this as we do not think our daughter would be alive today if this unit had not been there when she was born.

The number of units performing children’s heart surgery in England will be cut to six or seven from 11, under NHS plans.


The 11 units under review are: Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Liverpool; Birmingham Children’s Hospital; Bristol Royal Hospital for Children; Evelina Children’s Hospital, London; Freeman Hospital, Newcastle; Glenfield Hospital, Leicester; Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, London; Leeds General Infirmary; Oxford John Radcliffe Hospital; Royal Brompton Hospital, London; Southampton General Hospital.

It's a great shame that they are thinking of cutting back on any of them, and obviously a great worry to anyone that may end up living much further away from the unit they are used to dealing with.

So does that mean Birmingham's children hospital could be closed? I had my cancer treated for at the oncology ward there and I know that a lot of hospitals send children there as it's such a good hospital!

I presume any from the list are potentially under threat, I am supporting Leeds General Infirmary as that unit is the one serving my area and saved my daughter's life. I am not suggesting that everyone will/should want to support Leeds unit but it serves a large area and want people affected to know they can support the unit by signing this petition.

I am so sorry that we are trying to save Leeds General Infirmary as my middle little now coming up the age of 18 years of age next week had surgery at Leeds Killingbeck with Kevin Watterson in june 1993. Please save our unit at the LGI.

Kevin Watterson was the surgeon and Team along with ICU/HDU that saved our daughter at LGI too.
