Heart Problems /

Useful resources and links to other heart topics

01 In Brief

It would be impossible to cover every aspect of heart problems or  paediatric cardiology. We selected up to 6-8 of the commonest issues to explore in more detail, based on what we know most families often need more information about and written in a way that you understand. Everyday we discover more and more on line. This section provides links to those sites that we consider offer balanced, reliable and up to date information and will grow as we find more. The search function should direct you to a topic readily to so you can quickly tell if we have it covered. When you want to know… we want to be the first place you look.
