CURRENT RESEARCH PROJECTS
The Somerville Foundation are involved in a study called CHAMPION to try to improve how the quality of services for congenital heart disease (CHD) is measured and reported in England.
We want to hear your views on what makes services good quality, which includes understanding how COVID-19 has affected your experience of health care.

With your help, we opened the UK’s first dedicated Congenital Heart Research Centre.
The Somerville Foundation has always worked hard to improve the lives of people who were born with a heart condition. However much more needs to be done; especially when it comes to research.
That’s why, with your help, The Somerville Foundation opened the UK’s first dedicated congenital heart research centre.
The centre of its kind in the UK, and part of only a handful worldwide, this state-of-the-art facility is run in partnership with The Somerville Foundation and The University of Suffolk.
Combining the University’s expertise in cardiovascular science, exercise physiology, and psychology, and our expertise in supporting people with CHD, the centre focuses on finding more effective ways to treat and support CHD patients.
But more still needs to be done.
Today, too many congenital heart defect patients are dying prematurely and living restricted, and in some cases unhappy lives. We are a long way from having all the answers.
So, make a donation today and help us carry on our valuable work.
