Strike action is taking place across our services from Saturday 24 February to Wednesday 28 February. We'll contact your directly if your or your child's care is affected. We're sorry for any distress that delays to your care may cause.

Heart services outreach team

Our heart services outreach nurses support you and your family when your child has been diagnosed with congenital heart disease

Any child under the care of a heart consultant can be supported by this service, whether your child is seen at Evelina London Children's Hospital or in an outreach clinic at your local hospital.

Information and advice from the outreach service

The service consists of specialist nurses. They support families by providing information about:

  • heart condition diagnosis and how the condition will affect your child
  • signs and symptoms to look out for
  • relevant treatment options (surgical and medical)
  • your child's growth, development, medication, activities and general health and wellbeing

The nurses:

  • act as a link between Evelina London and all other healthcare professionals involved in your child's care
  • attend all outpatient clinics within Evelina London Children's Hospital and many of the outreach clinics
  • coordinate the rapid assessment service, where children who are new to the service or existing patients who have become unwell, may be reviewed by a cardiologist quickly and efficiently.
  • provide emotional support for parents
