About Us


Welcome to the East Midlands Congenital Heart Network.

Caring for Children and Adults across the East Midlands region.


Our Level 1 Specialist Centre located at the University Hospital of Leicester, hosts a dedicated centre of care which delivers a streamlined pathway approach. Supplemented by ten Level 3 centres across the region, we are able to deliver lifelong care closer to home.

East Midlands Congenital Heart Network works to bring clinical teams, managers, commissioners and patient/family representatives from across the region together to support patients of all ages with a congenital heart condition, and their families/carers.

The East Midlands Congenital Heart Network role and function is to enable and support a collaborative and seamless approach to congenital heart disease patient care across the East Midlands, ensuring that the services delivered are of a high quality and the provision of care is equitable across the Network.


Through the delivery of an annually agreed programme of work the Network will support the delivery of both regional and national priorities. This will be based on the assurance that we will:




 Provide strategic direction for congenital heart disease care across the East Midlands

 Support the overall vision of the Network

 Agree key priorities areas of improvement

 Support the education, training and development

 Provide a central point of information and communication for Network stakeholders
