Congenital Heart Disease care is provided in a network ‘hub and spoke’ model. This means that the different hospitals in the Network work together to coordinate patient care over a wide geographical area, to ensure the right level of care is offered to patients at the right time, in the right place and with the right expertise.
In the Network there are Level 1, 2 and 3 centres. Specialist surgery and other specialist procedures take place at the Level 1 Centre (University Hospitals Bristol). Some procedures can also take place in the Level 2 Centre (University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff) and ongoing outpatient management takes place in patients’ local hospitals (known as Level 3 Centres).
This section of the website gives you details of each of the hospitals (also known as centres) within the South Wales and South West Congenital Heart Disease Network. For each hospital, there is practical information on travel, parking, clinics, contact numbers etc. There is also information on the clinicians working at the different hospitals. If you click on a clinician’s name, you can find out more about the individual (where he/she has provided a full profile).
