Leisure Centre public meeting on heart surgery

THE Children’s Heartbeat Trust is to hold a public meeting in Coleraine Leisure Centre this Thursday (September 13th) at 7pm.

The Trust is campaigning against a recent report which found that children’s heart surgery in Northern Ireland is “safe but not sustainable”.

“This means that over 140 families would have to travel hundreds for miles to another centre in the UK to receive surgery and treatment,” said a spokesperson.

“We demand a local service for sick children in Northern Ireland. Protect and enhance children’s heart services.”
