Hello to Adult Services

Saturday 1 July 2017

University Hospital Southampton, F Level, North Wing.

"Hello to Adult Heart Services" Day – Southampton 

The Adult Heart Transfer Team at University Hospital Southampton are delighted to invite you to the "Hello to Adult Heart Services" Day on the 1st July 2017 between 11am and 3pm  

Why come? 

If you are a young person moving from paediatric to adult cardiac services then this event is for you and your family.

We appreciate many of you have been closely cared for by the children's heart team for a long time. It may be a scary thought for you and your family, moving to a team you don't know. This will give you a chance to help relieve that anxiety. This is a unique opportunity to meet your Adult Heart Team, alongside other young people with heart conditions with similar experiences and stories to tell. Also the day will be filled with health advice and information, and you will pick up a few goodies along the way. 

What to expect from the day? 

We have: 

•        Celebrity guest stars 
•        Goodie bags 
•        Raffle for everyone attending 
•        Football table challenge 
•        Camouflage make-up sessions 
•        Meet your Adult Heart Team 
•        Psychology Team 
•        Parent Zone 
•        Riverford food demonstration 
•        Tea & Coffee plus Lunch provided 
•        Mini talks on exercise, employment and contraceptives - just for starters 

Who to bring? 

You can bring whoever you wish, it's up to you.

Where will it be? 

University Hospital Southampton Heart Beat Education Centre, F Level North Wing. 

How to get there? 

Please park in the hospital car park as usual. Discounted parking for the day will be available on site. We are also running a FREE pick up and drop off bus service from Winchester, IOW Ferry in Portsmouth and Southampton Central station (times and places to be confirmed). Please email for more information. 
Interested? Please email with your name, email, mobile number, if you require transport and the number of people you are bringing along.
