Keeping the Beat
bringing a revolutionary children's heart theatre to the region
Keeping The Beat is an appeal supported by Children’s Heart Surgery Fund to raise £500,000 towards a revolutionary children’s heart theatre, based at the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit, LGI.
CHSF have already pledged £1.25 million towards this fantastic project, however, we need your help to ensure it happens.
The children’s heart theatre is one of its kind and bespoke to the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit. The theatre will be used for treating babies and children with congenital heart disease.
Over the next two years, Children’s Heart Surgery Fund’s focus is to support the new standards created by NHS England, which are now being implemented by each centre across the country. The children’s heart theatre is the biggest and most expensive standard amongst the 200 set out by the new review.
Thanks to the support of the Yorkshire people throughout the Save Our Surgery campaign we are proud to say Leeds is the fourth busiest unit in the country. Only Great Ormond Street, Birmingham and Royal Brompton carry out more procedures.
By supporting our appeal and helping Leeds to remain at the fore of specialist cardiac surgical facilities, you will ensure the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit continues to provide excellent care, to all the babies and children for generations to come.
