Based locally in Gateshead, the Children’s Heart Unit Fund support children & their families whom are receiving treatment. Helping those based at the Freeman Hospital, alongside the other treatment centres all across the North East across 5 decades.
The Freeman Hospital is one of only two hospitals in the United Kingdom that provide children’s heart transplants. Therefore, it sees 300 children admitted to the Children’s Heart Unit, with over 100 returning on a yearly basis for outpatient appointments. The work they do not only for the local community but for the wider population of the UK is crucial.
