Within our purpose built facilities we are able to care for patients with congenital heart disease from before birth to adulthood. 

Our distinguishing features are our internationally-recognised ECMO unit, our 24/7 retrieval service, our experienced cardiac team and our ability to see patients close to where they live through our East Midlands outreach service.

We are based at the Glenfield Hospital, Leicester close to the M1 & M69 and the national rail network.
