Save Children's Heart Surgery
On Wednesday 4th July the Joint Committee of Primary Care Trusts recommended that Children's Heart Surgery be stopped at the East Midlands Congenital Heart Centre based at the Glenfield Hospital in Leicester
We strongly believe this is the wrong decision, it could put the lives of these vulnerable children at risk.

Welcome to KEEPTHEBEAT
KEEPTHEBEAT is an exciting new charity established with an aim to provide hope and support to the families affected by congenital heart defects. The website will have a particular interest in Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, but over time we hope to develop and cover all Congenital Heart Defects.
Based in Leicestershire and supporting The East Midlands Congenital Heart Centre at Glenfield in Leicester, this site will be ever evolving. We would hope that over time we can provide resources to explain a wide variety of congenital heart defects and associated treatments and will provide a network to support cardiac children and their families. We hope to reach out to the boundaries of the geographical area serviced by The East Midlands Congenital Heart Centre, taking in Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Northamptonshire, parts of Warwickshire and South Yorkshire.
Parents experiences and needs are very much at the heart of this site so please let us know if there is something you would like to be covered and we will do our best to incorporate your ideas.
