There are over 1.8 million adults in Europe with congenital heart disease (CHD). In the UK it is estimated 250,000 adults have some form of congenital heart disease. Has your life been affected by it? If so, this day is for you.
You are invited to attend the Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust annual patient conference. The day will include a series of talks given by their consultant cardiologists. Designed to be informative and educational, it gives you the opportunity to ask questions (or just listen if you prefer) and be around like-minded people who understand the challenges of living with congenital heart disease.

Speakers and their topics include:
  • Lynda Shaughnessy, Clinical Nurse Specialist – How the heart develops and what can go wrong
  • Dr Rafa Alonso, Consultant Cardiologist – Endocarditis in CHD
  • Dr Lorna Swan, Consultant Cardiologist – Heart failure in CHD
