ACHD Review - Draft Standards

As many of you will know NHS England has been looking at services for GUCH patients to work out how they can be as effective as possible. A group of experts have been brought together, including nurses, cardiologists and most importantly patients and The Somerville Foundation.  This advisory group have produced a ‘model of care’, a way that things really should work as well as draft ‘designation standards’ that help to more clearly define the type of service that should be provided for you. More information is available on their website.

The draft standards and review are available here

Please help them to help you by letting NHS England know what you think.

Many thanks
