Safe And Sustainable Review

University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust welcomes the recommendations from the Safe and Sustainable panel that were today approved by the JCPCT.
We are delighted that Bristol Royal Hospital for Children has been included in all recommended options for the designation of paediatric cardiac surgery services by the National Specialist Commissioning Group.
Our highly experienced and dedicated staff have fully engaged with the Safe and Sustainable review process since it began in 2009, and the Trust continues to support the need to concentrate clinical expertise in the right number of centres to meet the national caseload and achieve the best clinical outcomes for children.
The paediatric cardiac service at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children has consistently demonstrated the quality of its care through excellent outcomes that can only be achieved through the highest standards.
It also meets the service specification standards set out by the NSCG and we believe the service is ideally placed to provide an excellent service to the people of the South West, South Wales and beyond.
We will play a full and active role in the public consultation process on the recommended options which begins on 28 February and will end in June 2011.
Dr Jacqueline Cornish, Head of the Division of Women's and Children's Services University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust
