Thanks to the incredible support of all those who donate to the Noah’s Ark Charity, we have been able to fund two Echocardiograph Machines for the Cardiology Unit, which treats around 4,000 patients a year. It’s most recent addition will specifically detect and diagnose heart conditions in babies both before and after birth.
This new state-of-the-art machine includes the latest technology to detect heart defects in unborn babies – saving lives, improving outcomes and giving parents informed choices about current and future pregnancies.
As part of our commitment to the opening of the second phase of the hospital, the charity provided funding for equipment that assists in diagnosing heart conditions in older children. The department also now benefits from a new information portal which has improved clinicians’ ability to share key information and notes about the cardiac patients in their care.
