Meeting the standards

1. In what capacity are you responding?

2. In what region are you based?

3. NHS England proposes that in future Congenital Heart Disease services will only be commissioned from hospitals that are able to meet the full set of standards within set timeframes. To what extent do you support or oppose this proposal?


4. Three hospital trusts have been assessed as not able to fully meet the standards within set timeframes. NHS England proposes that surgical (level 1) services are no longer commissioned from these trusts:

  • Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (adult service)
  • Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust (services for adults and children)
  • University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust (services for adults and children)
