Heart Care for Children

Cost £100,000

Our Paediatric Cardiology out-patient department treats up to 200 young patients every week for the diagnosis and management of heart disease.  A large proportion of patients require an ultra-sound scan of the heart, called an echocardiogram. This is obtained by the use of an echo machine. 

We would like to provide a brand new, state-of-the-art echo machine, with the cutting edge technology allowing our clinicians to obtain quicker and more accurate images.   The new technology will also reduce the length of time each scan takes, making the experience far less distressing for our young patients and allowing our clinicians to see more patients.
