As a medical condition-based organisation, Little Hearts Matter relies on the support and expertise of members of the medical and nursing professions.

We rely on these teams to inform us of changes in practice and potential new advances, to validate and contribute to the medical and lifestyle information we create, to work in partnership within arenas for change and whilst conducting research.

The support the charity gains comes from all of the congenital cardiac units from across the whole of the United Kingdom but key contributors are:

  • Dr David Crossland, Consultant Paediatric and Adult Congenital Cardiologist, Freeman Hospital, Newcastle.
  • Dr Graham Stuart, Consultant Cardiologist, Bristol Royal Infirmary.
  • Dr Paul Clift, Consultant Cardiologist, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.
  • Jo Quirk, Adult Congenital Cardiac Nurse Specialist, Leeds Royal Infirmary.
  • Justine Kid, Congenital Cardiac Nurse Specialist at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
  • Nicky Pope, Adult Congenital  Nurse Specialist  at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.
  • Amanda Haworth, Congenital Cardiac Nurse Specialist, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Liverpool.

    One of our wonderful members Daniela shares her feelings of when she first learnt that her son had only half a heart...

    "It was one of the most difficult and uncertain times in our lives but it was also helpful knowing that others could understand what we were going through and that we had prepared ourselves and done everything we needed to do to understand what was going to happen to Oscar in surgery."

    “We are forever grateful for LHM for everything they have assisted us with, for what they have informed us about, and for the ongoing support we receive. We really couldn’t do this journey without the charity.”

    A huge thank you to Daniela for sharing your half-a-heart journey with us, we'd love for you to read the full story here: bit.ly/2QY5Bcp
