BMA Self Care Resources Award Runner Up September 2015
Dental Care for Children with Heart Conditions
This aims to inform parents of the potential damage to the heart of gum disease in children with heart conditions and to explain how damage to the heart can be caused.
It was reviewed by Juliet Brown, from SIGN in Glasgow, who commented: “This is a really good leaflet, the writers have identified a clear need/gap for this resource and have worked hard to get the information out to families affected as well as including them in any review process.”

The Galactic Knights have raised £1,400 for Heartline and made a presentation of the cheque to Heart Mum, Claire Flavell and her family, at the Greyhound Inn Sausages and Beer Event on Saturday 12th September 2015. With sincere thanks to the Galactic Knights, David Chapman and Alice (who have experienced support from Heartline in the past). And of course to the Flavell Family who were at the Inn all afternoon to raise awareness of Heartline and raise funds for children with a heart condition.
Heartline welcomed some new faces to the dedicated team, at a trustees’ meeting in London in June.
Our new Chair of Board of Trustees is Linda McQuaid who is a GOSH trained children’s nurse who now works as interim NHS manager, currently at Surrey & Borders NHS Foundation Trust where she is responsible for children and young people’s services.
Two new trustees were elected: Mehul Nathwani, Fundraising lead, and Andy Wardle, Clinical Relations lead. Denise Hadow is our treasurer and Natalie Persoglio our marketing and pr adviser.
Linda McQuaid said: “It’s an exciting time for all of us. We’re currently working on our aims and goals for Heartline over the next few years. We are focusing on how we can give our families the very best possible support in all areas. Hazel has achieved some incredible things for Heartline and I look forward to continuing to help us succeed in our aim to support all heart families, wherever they may be. I’d very much like to extend our thanks, on behalf of the team and our families, to Hazel for her dedication and passion for Heartline over the years – without her we wouldn’t have been able to help our families through some of their most difficult times.”
