Resources and support

Welcome to the patient and family resources and support page - here you will find all of the patient information leaflets that you may require during your journey. We have tried to make this section easier to access by grouping leaflets into specific patient journeys: antenatal, surgical, catheter and useful information.

Please contact the cardiac nurse specialists if you cannot find information or if you have any questions about the information contained in this section. 

Is your child coming in for a general anaesthetic?
