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.

    "Niamh's not feeling 100% today, I asked her if she'd be more comfortable in pyjamas than Jigzy but bless her heart she said "I like to wear this top because it reminds me of the special people like doctors and nurses and Little Hearts who all make me feel better when I don't feel good, so when I wear Jigzy I always smile and it makes me feel better. "Hooray for Jigzy 🥰 xxx"

    And hooray for children living with half a working heart today, just like Niamh here.
