Hearts4teens started back in 2005. We asked a group of young people from across the North West of England and North Wales who were growing up with a heart condition what information, help and support they needed. They came up with the idea of setting up a support group. We now have the following services set up to support young people: All of these services are run by the Adult Congenital Heart Nurse Specialists based at Manchester Royal Infirmary. They can be accessed by anyone growing up with a heart problem regardless of where they live or which hospital they attend.
