Chief Medical Officer's Report - Evidential Base and Clinical Practice Aspects of Congenital Cardiac Services (August 2013) (PDF 77KB)
Department of Health (Northern Ireland)
Report on Evidential Base and Clinical Practice Aspects of Congenital Cardiac Services The principle drivers that should determine the optimal arrangements for the provision of congenital cardiac services, including  paediatric and adult cardiac surgery, for the population of Northern Ireland is how best those services can be configured to ensure the safest possible care that is of the highest quality possible in order to optimise outcomes and experience for patients and carers. Of necessity, this requires consideration of all requisite supporting services and arrangements to ensure access across the continuum of care. Such a configuration should support safe, high quality service provision on an on-going basis i.e. ensure sustainability as far as can be determined. In addressing this issue, consideration to the changing profile of population need and the evolving nature specialist services is required.
