The Network covers a population of 2.9 million people in the North East and North Cumbria, and is hosted by the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Trust.
Our vision is to provide high quality, equitable care for congenital heart disease patients wherever they live within our region; provided closer to home when possible, ensuring seamless transition between fetal, paediatric and adult services and providing an holistic approach to care.
The Board was formally established in January 2020 and includes representatives from adult and paediatric services from all 8 trusts across the region, patient and family representatives, primary care and regional NHS England commissioners.
The Board meets three times per year and is chaired by Professor Jonathan Wyllie from South Tees Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
