What happens at the clinic
Your child may have their height and weight checked. They will see the consultant cardiologist, or a senior Registrar, who will usually do a scan of your child’s heart. They will discuss with you anything they have found and any plans or changes. They will also let you know if and when you need to come back again.
If you need to come back again they will give you the contact details of the Children’s Cardiac Nurse Specialist and an information folder for you to take away.
What to bring
If you are coming back again, please bring your hospital information folder with you; this is where you can keep previous clinic letters we have sent you. If you don’t have a folder please ask at your appointment if you should have one.
Also bring any details of medication your child is taking.
