Welcome to Bristol's Children and Young People's Cardiac Service

We hope that the web pages that we have created will help you find your way through our services and support you with your journey.

A number of independent reports and findings about services in the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children were published in June 2016. We fully accept the findings of these reports and welcome their publication as a way to learn from mistakes. You can read more about these reports and the actions we are taking here. In addition there has been a national announcement about care for complex heart conditions that you may read about. No changes to services at the children's hospital will take place as a result and you can read our media response  here

As the Specialist Children's Surgical Centre, we work together with your Local Children's Cardiology Centres to provide cardiology and cardiac care across the whole of the South West and South Wales.

We offer a wide range of clinical services, from before a child is born until their transition into adult services.  This involves a large and experienced team of professionals, including Cardiologists, Surgeons, Clinic Nurse Specialists, Physiologists and Psychologists to name but a few.

We are in the process of refreshing our pages. If there is anything you would specifically like to see, or have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact either the Clinical Nurse Specialist Team on 0117 342 8286/342 8578 or the LIAISE service on 0117 342 8065 or by email to         

Your opinion is important to us.  As part of our ongoing conversation with families we run listening events around the region giving an opportunity for families who have used, are using or planning to use our cardiac services,  to talk to our staff about their experiences and what would make it better. You can see the feedback from the events so far here. We used the points raised at the events to develop some frequently asked questions with answers from our clinical team; we will be updating this list after each listening event but if you can't find your question here, please contact us directly and we will be happy to respond.

 Please Look out for other listening events happening near you on this page.
