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.

    A few weeks ago, we shared a news article about John and Kate Carlton who have been fundraising for Little Hearts Matter. This family’s amazing support doesn’t stop there, as their 9 year old daughter May also arranged for her school to take part in a non-uniform day for Little Hearts Matter. She put together a PowerPoint presentation and spoke to her Headteacher who agreed to hold a fundraising day for LHM.

    Just look at how many donations were received on the day – well done May, you’re a star! ❤️ To get involved and register your fundraising, click here: www.lhm.org.uk/get-involved/fundraising/register-your-fundraising/

    Youth Support

    There are young people living with half a heart across the country, many aged between 11 and 18. It is massively important for all of these brave young people to have access to the care, guidance and support they need – allowing them to live life to its full potential that their heart will allow.

    Lexie runs our Youth Services, supporting our youth members in a variety of ways, throughout their half a heart journey. These young members are invited to Activity Weekends and Education Days where they will explore their heart condition and seek solutions to the challenges that having half a heart brings. They will also have an opportunity to meet with other young members, online and in person, making friendships and helping them feel less alone.

    Did you know our youth members also consist of siblings? We know it can be a tough road for them too, so they also have a chance to chat with each other for support from people their age that truly understand. You can find out more about our Youth Services by clicking here www.lhm.org.uk/youth-zone/
