Encourage your MP to sign EDM 751

Following the parliamentary meeting on 20th November an Early Day Motion has been tabled. Please encourage your MP to sign EDM 751: Joined-Up Care for Congenital Heart Disease.


That this House notes that congenital heart disease is the most common birth defect, affecting over 5,000 new-born babies in the UK each year; considers that congenital heart disease requires equal recognition with other long-term health conditions and that patients deserve joined-up care antenatally, at birth, in childhood and throughout life in adulthood; further notes that such services should be well managed, with clear pathways of care and well developed networks delivering safe and excellent care for all patients in what is a very complex area of medicine; and calls on the Government, the NHS and the voluntary sector to work together to deliver this world class system of support and care.
