Congenital heart disease NHS England review

*Update from NHS England 30 November 2017*

NHS England's Board has endorsed a proposal regarding the commissioning of congenital heart disease (CHD) services in England.

Read our response to the decision from Bob Bell, Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust chief executive.

NHS England previously announced plans to end CHD services at Royal Brompton Hospital.

What does this mean for us?


If these plans to end services go ahead, it will force all CHD services at Royal Brompton, including our world-leading adult CHD research centre, to close.


It will also force the closure of a range of other services at the Trust, including the children’s intensive care unit and specialist children’s respiratory services such as those for cystic fibrosis, severe asthma and muscular dystrophy.

Our position


The Trust strongly disagrees with these plans. Our CHD service is one of the biggest, safest and most effective in the country and it is clear to us that this plan is not in the best interest of our patients.
