Young adult cardiac unit (E2)

University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust

Young adult cardiac unit (E2)​

The young adult cardiac unit was designed specifically to provide specialist care for young adults in an environment tailored to their needs, as well as offering the option of flexible visiting to promote patient support.

It gives our patients the chance to meet others with lifelong cardiac conditions in a comfortable and friendly setting and feedback suggests the facilities provide a comfortable, more homely and relaxed environment.

The unit is managed by a senior sister and all nurses working in the unit have had training in the care of patients with congenital heart conditions.

It was funded by the successful ‘High Five’ appeal run by the charity Wessex Heartbeat in partnership with University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust.
