NHS Service Review


It's fantastic news! More GUCH patients are living longer than ever before and numbers are growing every year. The NHS has recognised this and wants to ensure that every patient receives a world class standard of care.

Co-Chaired by Professor John Deanfield and Professor Sir Roger Boyle CBE, the ACHD Advisory Group has been looking at what it actually means to have the best possible treatment. Patients, families, clinicians and of course The Somerville Foundation have all taken part in this process. Indeed those of you who attended our Annual Conference in Glasgow will recall that the review team attended and talked directly with patients at our event. The team produced a detailed report Engagement with Patients at The Somerville Foundation Conference 2012 on their findings. 

The latest newsletter updating patients families and clinicians has just be published. Take a look and see what will be happening next. Above all as our Chairman and Advisory Group Member, Michael Cumper says 'no decisions have yet been made...we encourage everyone to take part in the debate. Your views are important'.
