Twice weekly multi-disciplinary meetings are held on Monday and Thursday mornings to review cases and plan treatment. Monthly Quality Assurance and Quality Improvement meetings are held to review congenital cardiac Quality Indicators (developed at Alder Hey), service efficiency, incidents, difficult cases, audit and research. Alder Hey has a full range of paediatric specialities and the cardiac team work closely with other consultant colleagues to provide holistic care.
A specialist cardiac feeding clinic runs monthly led by gastroenterologists, dietetics and speech and language therapists to manage and help support children with feeding difficulties.
