Hello! Hope you're well?
This is just a quick message to ask for your help. You may have heard on the news that the government is thinking about closing some regional children's cardiac surgery units. One of them is based at Leeds General Infirmary and serves Yorkshire, Humberside and the North Midlands. As a GUCH (grown up congenital heart) patient this centre is very close to my heart (no pun intended) and I would hate to see it close, as would thousands of other people in the area.
I appreciate that other units are facing closure, and you may have one near you which you are fighting to keep open - we're all in the same boat really, and none of us want to lose such a valuable service.
But if you could just take a moment to read this and this, and then sign the petition, it would be greatly appreciated.
