    My son had heart surgery there and the care during and after the operation were outstanding. Understandly there were a few cancelled ops when more serious cases came in at the last minute, but living in Southampton this wasn't a problem. If we had had to go to London each time, this would have added to the stress of an already stressful situation.

    My son had open heart surgery at Southampton and has been monitored there since he was born in 1998.

    It would be a shame to close such a good facility that has helped so many children.

  8. Patricia Beckley Swindon UNITED KINGDOM

    This ward saved the life of a relative last year. She would not be alive without their specialist care.

  9. Annalise Hecks Larkhill, Salisbury UNITED KINGDOM

    Our son was treated by the Cardiac Team in Southampton last year. We are still under yearly review with Dr Joseph and would not want to go anywhere else. We have built up a rapport with Dr Joseph and wish this to continue. The nursing and administrative staff on Ocean Ward are second to none and looked after Henry with the upmost care and professionalism. Having the Wessex Heartbeat house close by is an invaluable facility for parents who wish to be near their children during their stay in the intensive care and high dependency units. Although it is an hour drive to Southampton General Hospital it is still the closest unit to us and therefore the most convenient for us. We do not wish Southampton Cardiac Unit to close and cannot recommend it highly enough.
